Explore the Collection - Boneyard Pottery

(Spring 2020)

Boneyard pottery are pieces left behind by guest artists as teaching samples for the host studio. Typically they are bisque fired (initial process of baking unglazed clay) to highlight form, texture, and other information for pottery students.

The Newberry Arts Center loaned pieces of their boneyard collection made by artists featured in the annual South Carolina Clay Conference.  Below you will find examples from 2015-2019.
