Are you looking for a unique gift to bye for someone special on your holiday list? The Native American Studies Center Hosts their Seventh Annual Winter Art Festival. Today on QC@3, we met Caroleen Sanders. She is a Catawba Indian Master Potter and has been keeping this tradition going for over 4,000 years. Caroleen talked to us about the process of making pottery, from digging her own clay, to shaping it with her own hands, to firing the pottery in a pit. She even brought in several of her beautiful masterpieces, that you’ll be able to purchase at the Winter Art Festival.
