Ann Arbor Potters Guild

For nearly 80 years, the Ann Arbor Potters Guild has been serving the needs and interests of some of the community's most creative people. And, those artists have been serving the Guild.  It is a cooperative model that is being copied around the country because of its ongoing success.  In this week's 'creative:impact,'  Maki Lin shares the story of how the Guild is set up and built to last.

J.T. Abernathy has been a potter for 71 years.  The 94 year-old Ann Arbor man hasn't missed an Ann Arbor Art Fair since it first began in 1960.  I visited him at the Ann Arbor Potters Guild to talk to him about his work and his Art Fair memories.
