The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia has just opened for its 2011 season.

On January 18, the Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia reopened for its 2011 season with a special addition of three early pieces of White County pottery. The museum’s collections represent almost 200 years of folk pottery heritage. One of the "new" donated items, a pickle jar with an ash alkaline glaze, dates back to 1843; it is now the oldest piece in the museum's collection. A temporary exhibition featuring pottery made by the noted Meaders family (also of White County) is also on display.

The Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia centers exclusively on regional folk pottery from the mid-1800s to today. In addition to its pottery collections, the museum boasts a living history area, where visitors can see how traditional pottery was made and used in everyday life in the 19th century. Monthly pottery demonstrations by local artists are held at the museum as well. For those who are interested in purchasing folk art, the museum shop offers a selection of pieces for sale.
