Jeff Young lives in Vale, N.C. - an area known as the Catawba Valley Pottery region. He produces wood fired folk pottery. His traditional line of pottery uses hand dug clay, ash glazes and are fired in his wood kiln. His alkaline glaze is a combination of wood ash, glass, and clay. It is a more intense and time consuming process but produces a truly unique and authentic folk style of pottery. Jeff makes face jugs, wig stands, monkey jugs, multi-face pictures, and most any type of traditional pottery. His pottery can be purchased at pottery festivals, and kiln openings.
