Pottery 51’s Second Friday reception and studio tour is this Friday, November 8th from 6:30 to 9 pm at the studio located in The Lofts at 7714.  This month’s featured artists are long-time Pottery 51 leader David Bridge and Althea Mead-hajduk.

Pottery 51’s studio houses 26 local potters who spin and bake their clay works on site.  The end results are displayed in the front gallery as well as in each potter’s individual space, which makes Friday night’s reception the perfect time to start your holiday shopping.  Forget the “same old, same old” gifts this year.  Give a truly unique gift – a piece made by a local artist in Mint Hill.

Come spend this Friday night in a new way at Pottery 51’s Second Friday event.

A Big Thanks to Pottery 51

Pottery 51 is the veteran among the tenants of The Lofts at 7714. Long before this vintage mill building at 7714 Matthews-Mint Hill Road in Mint Hill was renamed The Lofts at 7714, they were creating their art within its walls. First as part of Mint Hill Arts and then eventually on their own, they have been wonderful tenants and excellent stewards of this old building.

It has been almost nine months since Pottery 51 moved from their former studio at the back of The Lofts at 7714 into their street-front space. In that time, they have created an artistic oasis for themselves and the town of Mint Hill, hosting their First Friday open houses, providing locally-made pottery and jewelry via their front gallery, and offering classes to aspiring potters of all ages.

In addition to the internal work on their studio, the potters of Pottery 51, led by the tireless David Bridge, have added significant curb appeal to both the front and back of this building. As these photos show, Pottery 51, has brought new life to the building. JMMT, the owners of The Lofts at 7714, extend our sincere thanks to Pottery 51 for all of their hard work and their tender loving care of this circa 1945 building.
