Pottery Gathering

Fusing Red Earth: Moundville Pottery Gathering and Expo is a four day program for people interested in Southeastern Indian pottery past and present. Potters, both native and non-native, join scholars, museum professionals, teachers, students and others to share their knowledge of the art, technology and evolution of indigenous ceramics in the Southeast.

Held March 28 through 31, the gathering involves panel discussions, workshops and exhibitions. On March 31, a public exposition at Moundville Archaeological Park features potters and other artists whose creations connect with Southeastern Indian art. Outdoor firings, pottery making demonstrations and hands-on children’s activities are planned from 9 am to 5 pm. Regular admission is charged.
