We are excited to announce that Quirk-n-Bach Pottery will be making their debut at Annapolis Pottery for Artwalk 2010. Kristin Quirk Clevenger and Cameron Bach began their pottery careers as production potters for Annapolis Pottery over 15 years ago. With what they learned, they decided to strike out on their own and open a studio located in the Annapolis area.  

Their specialty is functional  stoneware and earthenware pottery in multiple glaze colors and styles. They will be demonstrating in our studio for the evening.  

Todd’s Dirt Seasoning, made in Severna Park, can be sampled during the event in many of the serving pieces that Quirk-n-Bach Pottery makes.  Once you try these seasonings and pottery, you will be hooked on some hometown wonders!
