KENTUCK ART NIGHT HIGHLIGHTS FAMILY’S POTTERY-MAKING TRADITION

Kentuck Art Night Millers Pottery

By WVUA 23 reporter Ashlee Davis

Kentuck’s monthly Art Night Thursday featured plenty of local vendors, food and live music, but the main event was pottery group Miller’s Pottery.

The group isn’t new to the area, though. In fact, they’ve been around for nearly 200 years, said artist Steve Miller.

“We are six generations worth of pottery making in Alabama,” he said. “(We started) in the early 1830s down on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay, and we’ve been making pottery in Alabama ever since.”

Nowadays, Miller’s Pottery is based in Bibb County. The group’s folk pottery has an antique, quintessentially Southern look in their pots, vases and seasonal sculptures.
