Welcome Teri Whitner

Teri Whitner's life is filled with wonder, humor and adventure. She grew up on a farm in Wisconsin, spent years offshore fishing all over the world, the diverse vitality of the natural world has been her inspiration. Ms. Whitner has three young boys, multiple domestic animals, lizards, exotic birds, and red-eye tree frogs fill her world.

Teri frequents mud flats after dark, most often in white shrimper boots, with lantern and flounder gig. Her indomitable spirit and lust for life bring out the one-of-a-kind hand crafted pieces of art for which she is so well known. This same spirit leads to daily innovation in design, color and material.

Her platters are created with red earthenware and decorated with multiple layers of glaze. In some areas of her pieces she uses a glaze that crawls giving the piece an interesting texture.

We've shown the larger pieces here but have smaller as well depicting crabs, geckos, and turtles.

A wonderful addition to our group of potters of the Carolinas!
