Lee Davis Pottery
The marriage of form and function is celebrated in the work of Weaverville, NC potter Lee Davis. A long-time member of the Southern Highlands Craft Guild, Lee continues to produce beautiful and collectible white stoneware suitable for everyday use. He has taught and mentored two generations of potters in Western North Carolina, an area well known for handcrafts and pottery in particular. Lee generally only sells his work at WNC retail craft shows, so this is a rare opportunity to see his charming pottery.
Shown here is Lee's blue and white glaze combination, with patterns intended to mix and match. Designs range from animal motifs to flowers, leaves and garlands. The classic, fresh blue and white colors would be a perfect addition to a French Country kitchen.
