Stoneware with Curtis Rice

"A stickler for detail, a capable artist, a passionate collector of stoneware, historic forged iron and antique buildings. He is a left hander, always curious as to "who" made this piece as so many pieces of stoneware are unmarked. He is an author and has tried to identify various makers of stoneware to tie them to their amazing products." This is Curtis Rice of Richmond, Virginia and on Tuesday, April 10, at 10:00am, he will be at the Bassett Historical Center. He will tell how he began being interested in stoneware and show samples of his work. Ten members of the audience may bring one item for Mr. Rice to view and tell everyone its story. Please call the Center (629-9191) to register to be one of the ten.
