began her pottery career in Jackson County, near Whitleyville, TN.
After 9 years away from the wheel, Annie Keith has re-opened her
studio near Jamestown in Fentress County Tennessee.
Annie studied pottery at Appalachian Center for Crafts, TN Tech’s
Craft Center, near Smithville, TN. The love of old pottery forms and
the thrill of throwing similar forms on the potter’s wheel soon
turned what was to be a hobby into an avocation.
The vast majority of the pottery is thrown on her potter’s wheel.
She loves to feel the lump of clay grow into a classic form beneath
her hands. The hand painted flowers and other designs are inspired
by Annie’s garden and the wildflowers in the beautiful Tennessee
woodlands near her home. Annie’s pottery is stoneware, which is chip
resistant and dishwasher safe. The glazes are food safe. Most forms
are functional and meant to be used.
The Jackson County Historical Society chose one of Annie’s
Bi-Centennial crocks to be placed in their 100-year time capsule in
Nashville's Bicentennial Park.
Exhibitions - Annie's work has been shown at both the :
Carroll Reece Museum in Johnson City and
TN State Museum in Nashville
TACA Centennial Park Fairs
Foothills Craft Guild Show in Knoxville
Knoxville’s Dogwood Festival
Smithville’s Fiddler’s Jamboree
Riverfest in Canton, GA
