This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with fifth generation potter Sid Luck. With his wood burning groundhog kiln he continues a family tradition of pottery making that has existed in the Seagrove, NC area since the early 19th century. Sid started making pottery for JB Cole in 1957 and though he has practiced other professions he has never stopped making pottery. He has been named a living treasure of North Carolina and is a recipient of the NC Heritage award.
In the interview we talk about whiskey, war, and the evolution of the Luck tradition. For more information on Sid's work please visit www.lucksware.com. Sid has been featured in numerous articles and two documentaries by Jim Sharkey. You can view a clip from the 1999 documentary Crawdad Slip at www.folkstreams.net.
