In what’s become a treasured tradition, a local potter is making the communionware for the Ninth Triennial Gathering. Jinny Hargrave has been a professional potter since 1972. In 1995 Hargrave founded Carolina Clay Connection, a pottery supply company based in Charlotte; she teaches there regularly. With works in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe, Hargrave brings significant experience to the task of creating chalices and patens. Hargrave is seen here in the sales area of Carolina Clay Connection.
