Pottery is an inseparable part of the history and culture of the Appalachian territory in the westernmost part of North Carolina. We met numerous local artisans on our quest for exquisitely crafted ceramics.
Sue Salvaterra Hintz has a studio in Weaverville, a charming town 10 miles north of Asheville. She primarily sells her work through local galleries, but visits to her basement studio can be arranged. Her specialty is functional pieces such as serving bowls, dishes, mugs and ceramic cabinetry knobs. You can choose from four glaze combinations: “Smoky,” a matte blend of cream, light blue and rust; “Green,” with hues of teal and white, and a streak of raspberry; “Moss,” a mix of marbled browns, with tones of green and blue; and “Sky,” a variety of blue tones.
