Fired Works began as a local pottery show and has grown to become the largest exhibit of functional and sculptural pottery in the state of Georgia. The nine-day exhibit and sale includes special events such as Clay Workshops for Children, Corks and Clay Workshops for adults, demonstrations, and more.
A Special Preview Party kicks off on the Friday before Fired Works with live music, food, and a chance to purchase work before the exhibit opens to the general public. The mission of Fired Works is to provide a platform for artists and to promote the rich history of pottery in Central Georgia and support the work of the Macon Arts Alliance. People have made pottery along the banks of the Ocmulgee River for thousands of years and local potters and ceramic artists continue this tradition today.
Fired Works 2020 Featured Artist: Holly Polich
Holly Polich makes ceramics out of her home studio in Roswell, GA. When she’s not making pots, she can often be found riding a tandem road bicycle with her husband, Rich. Sometimes their dog Millie rides along on the back of the bike, too.
Her prior education is in fine arts and textile sciences, where she has both a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Science, and her first career was as a textile designer for US textile manufacturing.
She was first inspired to make pottery when she fell in love with 19th century food storage crocks. Over the past few years, she has been focused on developing glaze recipes and techniques that create durable and unique surfaces.
