Seagrove Pre-Conference Artist
Chad Brown enjoys making wood fired alkaline glazed and salted pots. Many of the shapes he makes today are like the ones his grandfather and great-great grandfather made. Chad focuses on two aspects of pots: shape and surface. The shapes are designed by him and the surfaces are decorated by fire. Occasionally the best shape and the best surface find each other; this is his forever pursuit.Groundhog Kiln
Chad will be firing the Groundhog kiln at the NC Pottery Center. Built by ancestors of the Luck family, this wood-salt kiln has a long history in this area of central North Carolina. Its an 60 cu/ft with a refractory quartz floor that is fired in the traditional groundhog style.
