Pottery Goes Big In Summers County


Jeff Diehl was born with clay in his blood. His grandfather was a potter in New Jersey making mostly earthenware flower pots. Diehl's great grandfather was also a potter in Germany. Jeff never really considered doing anything else but making pots. Obtaining his formal education at Berea College in Kentucky, Jeff's has had his hands in clay ever since. His home, studio, and huge outdoor wood kiln is located in beautiful rural Summers County where he and his wife Donna have raised a family and continue to create amazing and functional works of art. Most of his pots are functional, though occasionally he'll explore the non-functional realm. Recently Jeff has been creating extremely large pots, using anywhere from 150 to 300 lbs of clay in each pot. Crediting Asian influences, Jeff has mastered his technique and enjoys the challenge that these large vessels present. This weekend is Lockbridge Pottery's Labor Day studio show which will accentuate what the Diehl's have been working on, as well as providing a glimpse of what goes into producing the work.
