Clay for Community Fundraiser Success

Clay for Community

Thank you Linville River Pottery for a very successful Clay for Community Pottery Sale in 2022. The sale generated $2,026 for Feeding Avery Families – enough to fund more than 12,000+ meals for hungry residents in Avery County.

If you enjoy using or gifting unique local handmade pottery while supporting nonprofit organizations vital to our community, join us for Patti Connor-Greene and Dan Greene’s annual benefit sale at Linville River Pottery (hoping to return in 2024). They donate 75% of all proceeds to Feeding Avery Families and to local land conservation nonprofits: Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and Blue Ridge Conservancy.

Explore a variety of Patti’s handmade stoneware and porcelain mugs, bowls, vases, dreamscapes, earthscapes, wildscapes, and woodland series. They’ll have new work fresh from the kiln, as well as longtime favorites and sale pots. No early sales. Cash or checks only. No credit or debit cards.

Linville River Pottery

Patti and Dan moved to the area full time in 2008. Since Patti was six years old, she has been working with clay. Patti views experimenting with clays and glazes as an immersion into the wilderness. This passion shows in the beautiful clays pieces created and in their dedication to benefiting the community around them.
