By: Jim McFarland
"The Potters of Orange" is a ground-breaking tour de force which presents a revealing glimpse into the world of an obscure group of potters who have lived and worked for more than a century in east-central Cherokee County, Georgia. This comprehensive volume enthusiastically and forthrightly proffers a fresh and insightful knowledge and unique perspective into the lives and works of these ceramic artists, who serendipitously worked their way from distant places to a place called "Orange." Replete with almost 400 photographs, the vast majority in full color, you will not only be able to read the captivating and inspiring - and at times heartbreaking - stories of the potters, but you can also view many never-before published photographs of the potters, their families and associates, and their works. Hopefully, the potters will at last receive the recognition and kudos they so richly deserve for a job well done. There is  a world of art and history right here in Cherokee County, in our own backyard. You may go to the Eiffel Tower, to the Great Pyramids, or to New York, in search of the world's great cosmopolitan cultures, and then return home with an empty heart, only to later discover everything you were ever searching for, and more, right here in you own house.
