Big, bold, and beautiful contemporary and traditional ceramic expressions
Mark Hewitt is well known for bending the traditions of NC and SC into a compelling contemporary style. He makes beautiful big pots as well as a range of delightful smaller pots, using local clays, and firing them in a large wood-burning kiln. Mark's father and grandfather were Directors of Spode China in England. He studied Geography at Bristol University, and apprenticed with Michael Cardew in Cornwall, and Todd Piker in CT, before moving to Pittsboro, NC in 1983. He is a 2015 United States Artist Fellow, and is a recent past president of the North Carolina Pottery Center.
