Raine Middleton ~ Hartzog Pottery
As a descendant of Catawba Valley potter David Hartzog and a native of western Lincoln County, I have always been drawn to the NC traditional clay experience. As an artist, I am drawn to contemporary design. This unlikely pairing of traditional and contemporary expands my approach to making pots by the unlimited exploration of functional forms, contemporary surface designs, and firing techniques. Constant learning, stretching, and risk taking define my artistic challenge as well as my personal growth journey. My quest is to make a joyful pot while living a joyful life.
