Tim Whitten

Museum Gallery: May 6, 2021-May 28, 2021

Tim developed a fondness for folk art upon moving to South Carolina in 2009. A self-taught potter, he began by making functional wares like bowls and birdhouses in 2010 before quickly making a shift to face jug pottery. Many of his pieces draw inspiration from traditional American folk pottery with an emphasis on face jug pottery. He has attended shows and festivals in Alabama and South Carolina and ships pieces throughout the country. Tim also enjoys doing demonstrations and passing along the tradition whenever there is an opportunity. Tim has a B.S. from Auburn University and a M.A.R. from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. He also works for the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church.
