For $100, you have the opportunity to purchase a copy of Daniel Johnston: A Portrait of the Artist as a Potter in North Carolina signed by Daniel Johnston and author Henry Glassie and your choice of a barrel-shaped mug or a straight-sided stein. These pots are made by Daniel Johnston with local clay from Seagrove, North Carolina, and fired in Daniel’s large wood kiln. Each stein & mug is stamped with a “D” and “2020” to commemorate the first edition of this historic book.
similar but not the same
Each stein & mug is similar to what is presented in the photos. However, the processes of digging clay locally, hand throwing and decorating, and wood firing result in a richness of surface variation. In this practice, no two pots are ever identical. We ensure they will all be beautiful, but if you are not satisfied with what you receive, we will be happy to replace it.
