Silvie Granatelli Workshop

The Carolina Clay Guild was proud to host Silvie Granatelli in a workshop held on September 11 & 12, 2003.

The studio of Silvie Granatelli lies at the confluence of the Beaver Creek and the Little River. Once an old Mill site, you can stand on the
bridge over the water and maybe catch a glimpse of the migrating Blue
Herons that often rest there. Silvie has been successful nationally
with her work, making elegant and very personal functional porcelain
pottery. Recipient of a Virginia Museum Fellowship, she teaches
part-time at Virginia Tech as well as many workshops around the
country. Her work can be seen in numerous ceramic books and
publications. Silvie is one of the excellent potters who works in the
16 Hands Pottery Area near Floyd, VA (west central Virginia). Using
porcelain, she cuts, pieces, alters, and recreates it, by adding
textures for lots of variety and flair. Painting delightful still lifes
inside the serving pieces with underglazes, she then finishes it with a
lovely glazing. But don't take our word for it, go look at the web site
that has an extensive gallery of her work:
