Earth & Heat: Amelia Island Pottery, Past and Present with Dr. Niell Wallis at Amelia Island Museum of History

Your favorite mug, your terracotta planter, your heirloom tea set: pottery is all around us, but the process behind it is much more complex than many people realize. Earth & Heat takes an expansive look at how local pottery is crafted, from native Timucuan works to contemporary potters on the island today.

The exhibit will open with a talk by Dr. Neill Wallis, Associate Curator of the Ceramic Technology Lab at the Florida Museum of Natural History. He will discuss ancient indigenous pottery in northeast Florida. The presentation will take place on June 16 at 6 p.m.

Attendance is $5 for members and a suggested donation of $10 for nonmembers. Seating is limited on a first come, first served basis. This program is wheelchair accessible.
