Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish
Bakersville, NC

Michael and Naomi live and work in the mountains of western North Carolina.  Using many local materials, they collaborate in making wood-fired utilitarian pottery. Although they make and glaze the pottery together, individually, Naomi makes the figurative sculptures, and Michael makes the large jars. Michael apprenticed with Onggi potter Oh Hyang Jong in Kwangju, Korea, and was a Resident Artist at North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove, NC, as well as a core student at Penland School of Crafts.   Naomi earned a BA from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana.  The couple met at Penland during a kiln-building workshop. Their pottery is named "Bandana Pottery" after the small community in which they live.
