Collection: Nancy Green

Watkinsville, GA

“Twenty-three years ago, I wasn’t even aware that people made pottery. A friend asked me if I had ever been to Liz Lurie’s sales. I said ‘no, what does she make and why would I want to go?’ My friend said ‘she makes pottery and I think you would like it.’ I went. I loved her work and after two years of collecting, Liz said ‘you know Nancy, you could make pottery,’ and so I did. I started at a local ceramic center. Based on Liz’s recommendations, I began attending demos to learn techniques and develop my aesthetic. My first workshop was a summer abroad in Shigaraki, Japan through the University of Georgia (Athens). The journey just kept going.”
