McCarty Pottery

I've collected McCarty pottery for a while now.  My favorite...

This is a pic I took in 2005 of the entrance, covered in bamboo:
McCarty's Pottery in Merigold MS

While the old water tower across the street is gone (it was the best landmark to find the studio -- just drive to it), the bamboo is still there.

And inside (the studio began as a mule barn) there's all this gorgeousness:

The black wavy line on functional pieces signifies the Mississippi River:

Faulkner gave the owners, Lee and Pup (Pup is sadly gone now), their first clay from a ravine behind Rowan Oak.  Yesssss!

McCarty is so perfect in so many ways:
