Mark Issenberg of Lookout Mountain Pottery will host a holiday sale and kiln opening with several of his artist friends Saturday and Sunday. Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. both days.
"The kiln opening will be Saturday at noon, and I am inviting folks to help me unload my kiln and get first pick on the pottery," he said.
"I make functional pottery with earth-colored glazes that people can use every day, and this year I have made face jugs in the tradition of folk potters of North Georgia."
This is his eighth annual Holiday Sale With Friends. Other featured artists are:
Becky Braddock -- pottery and felted bags.
Majorie Langston -- lampworked glass beads and Christmas ornaments.
Don Hutchinson -- recycled creations.
This year's theme is "Buy Local / Buy Handmade."
Lookout Mountain Pottery, a 35-minute drive from downtown Chattanooga, is at 3005 Plum Nelly Road in Rising Fawn, Ga., about two miles from Cloudland Canyon State Park. Nearby restaurants include Canyon Grill and Geneva's.
The Plum Nelly Clothesline Art Show, hosted by Chattanooga artist and teacher Fannie Mennen, was previously held on Issenberg's property. For more, visit www.lookoutmountainpottery.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 706-398-3232.
