North Carolina potter Ben Owen III will display several dozen pieces of his artwork at Gardner-Webb University during the month of October. The exhibit, “Tradition and Transition,” will offer a range of examples of the pottery craft that has been a major part of Owen’s entire life and his family’s history for centuries. Owen’s forefathers settled in North Carolina in the late 1700s, and they learned pottery techniques as a means of producing wares that met utilitarian needs in their homes.
