A. V. Smith, was
born Alvie L. Smith in Sanford, North Carolina. A. V. began turning pottery at
the age of 15 and attended university to study turning techniques, glazes and
firing. He worked at Pinehurst Pottery in 1978 making dinnerware, lamp
bases, candle sticks and other items the pottery needed. A. V. began
his own pottery in partnership with Charles Lisk in Pinehurst and Southern
Pines, North Carolina. A. V. and Charles operated Clenny Creek Pottery
until 1982 when Charles moved to Hickory. A. V. and Charles have
remained good friends by sharing their pottery knowledge and experiences.
V. works with many of the traditional shapes that are common to Catawba Valley
Pottery and Seagrove Pottery centers at his pottery in the Lee County
countryside. He makes all of his work with an emphasis on the functional
aspect of the work. His work, however, is characterized by a love of intense
color. A. V. uses the traditional alkaline glaze in addition to many
brilliant hues and colors. Dramatic and intense flow patterns from glass
fragments, dark contrasting glaze underneath on a large jug and lively bright
swirlware on his pieces all testify to his love of color. All of A. V.'s pieces
are hand turned and completely handmade pottery.
