November's Featured Artist - Martha Peddicord

Martha has been a professional potter for 14 years. She graduated from the Professional Pottery program at Piedmont Tech in Edgefield, SC. Working from a studio in the old stables at her home in Ninety Six, she creates functional, decorative pieces for the home and table and teaches hand building classes. Her desire is to create family heirlooms- to make that piece of pottery that a young woman receives as a bride, and passes down to generations that follow.
