Georgia Blizzard

Georgia Blizzard (1919-2002) was a potter who used clay found locally in the Appalachian hills fired and colored with bark, leaves or mud, her work had a captivating quality with a timeless appeal. Her works, frequently depicting local or family characters from her memory, reflected the flowing sensibilities of the sculpture of the 1940's, while having a pre-Columbian quality. Perhaps these imposing clay sculptures and vessels can best be described as essayist and photographer Jonathan Williams characterizes Georgia Blizzard, as "part American Indian, part Celtic, and part William Blake."
