The Journeymen

Seagrove has a unique situation for potters wanting to stay and be in the game. This in my mind beats working at McD’s and saying “ Would you like fries with that?” Here is a pic of Jared Zehmer and Wild Bill Jones. Jared makes half the pots in Seagrove. He goes from pottery to pottery and throws their production line and is paid by the pound. A good quick thrower can make a decent living wage. Reportly the other half of the pots are made by Chad Brown. These dudes can move clay. Wild Bill Jones seen here having a Black IPA with Dan works two days a week here at Starworks making a production line for a designer. The work is marketed throughout the country. Cary Hulin and David Stuempfle (had to check the spelling) both got their chops doing production at a big workshop in Wisconsin. Later David was a journeyman with Vernon Owen at Jugtown here in Seagrove. This kind of security allows you some steady income while establishing your own studio and following. You also leave all the trouble…
