Folk Art Pottery At Clay, Art & Fire

Clay, Art and Fire will be held in Big Rapids Michigan and will be bringing together "Folk Art Potters" from all over the country. But one potter in particular hails from Southern California. Karl Kuehn is one of the featured potters at the event that focus's on face jugs. Face jugs can be found throughout history, in this country they became popular when used to scare children away from their contents, most notably moonshine! Face jugs have been used to scare away evil spirits and can be found as far back as the ancient Egyptians.

Karl has set up a page on his website dedicated to Face Jugs, be sure to check it out. And if you are in Michigan next June go check out the show, sounds like it will be fun!
