Season 2 of Collecting Carolina

Collecting Carolina: NC GlassBroadcast Date: 10/02/2014
Cedar Creek Gallery with NC Museum of History Decorative Arts Associate Curator Michael Ausbon
Collecting Carolina visits the beautiful gallery, pottery and glass blowing studios of Cedar Creek Gallery in Creedmoor. Here we see glass being blown and molded, and pottery shaped and carved. We discover the joy of watching artists at work and how our understanding of the process increases our appreciation for the work. Michael zeros in on items made by North Carolinians using North Carolina materials. Join us in the discovery.

Broadcast Date: 10/23/2014
Village of Yesteryear at the NC State Fair Grounds with NC Museum of History Decorative Arts Associate Curator Michael Ausbon
The Village of Yesteryear was established over 60 years ago to help educate fairgoers on the traditional handcrafts of North Carolina and the importance that these crafts played in our family histories. From baskets to quilts, wood turning and pottery, metal work and fine art, the annual 10-day event attracts many hundreds of thousands of visitors and has made some of the craftsmen not only a living, but very collectible. Join us as we meet several of the artists who come year after year and share their love of their craft with all who stop by to visit.
