NC Mountains Pre-Conference Artist
Will Dickert is a studio potter in Asheville, NC. He was raised in Southwestern Virginia and attended the University of North Carolina at Asheville where he earned a BA with a focus in ceramics and was awarded a NC teaching licensure for k-12 art education.
He aims to create stoneware objects that are fresh in design and intent, but that embody a feeling of sentimentality and familiarity. His work is wood-fired using a number of techniques and kilns, both traditional and contemporary in design and effect. His work is driven by a strong affinity and love for the Southern Appalachian region, its people and traditions. Teaching is a passion that continues to play a significant role in his involvement in the arts in his community.
