The Biggest News of All...Edges Barnes has retired from Ceramica but moving into a new chapter of his long and creative life.

Edge's contributions with business partner Audrey, were a big factor in why Ceramica has grown and become a very successful resource for so many potters far and wide. With his glaze expertise and ceramic knowledge, his ability to design and build structures needed to make life easier for staff and customers at Ceramica, he will be missed!

As a side note, to Edges retirement, we now  have Fahad AlSuwaidi to help fill in where Edge left off. He will be a regular Pottery Instructor along with his many duties in and around Ceramica. Many of you may already know Fahad as he has been a very visible and active part of the local clay scene from Seagrove to Wake Forest and almost everywhere in between. He has volunteered and taught in many, many different studios. He's a lot of fun to have around with his laid back style and always cheerful sense of humor.
