some of our pottery work:
Here are a couple of links to videos. The first is a piece done by the students at Waynesburg University and it documents our work in clay. The second is produced by Curtis Pollock of Yellow House Studios and documents a Raku workshop we did at the Greensburg Arts Center.
Jim & Linda Winegar have been working with clay for 49 years. Their pottery studio is located on a 60 acre property in Greene County, in the very southwestern corner of Pennsylvania. Jim and Linda are both graduates of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, with degrees in Art Education. Their studies at IUP, with potter and ceramics instructor Frank Ross, began their lifelong adventures with clay. The Winegars produce a variety of functional and decorative clay pieces. These range from utilitarian items such as vases, bowls, platters, casseroles and dinnerware to more decorative objects such as large floor pots, and one-of-a-kind carved and embossed vessels with precious and semi-precious stones as adornments. Much of their recent work has included the addition of hand-formed oak leaves and acorns, reflective of the beautiful rural setting of their home and studio. Most of these stoneware clay pieces are created on the potter's wheel and fired to 2300 degrees. The utilitarian ware can be used in the oven and microwave and is dishwasher safe.
Jim and Linda welcome visitors to Winegar Pottery. The pottery studio is located in a 140 year old barn, with an adjacent kiln building. Please call 724-428-3307 if you wish to visit the studio.
They are members of the Craftsmen's Guild of Pittsburgh and the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen and participate in a number of craft shows and festivals. Our show schedule can be found under the show schedule tab.
Both Jim and Linda were deeply involved with Pennsylvania Odyssey of the Mind for 25 years. Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving program for kids. Linda is the Association Director for the state of Pennsylvania, with Jim also serving as a state official.
