Wyoming First program (as featured in WBC's January newsletter):
Located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Glenrock, Wyo., Accentrix Horsehair Pottery is owned by Adele Young who creates one-of-a-kind pottery from a small studio in her home.
She mixes her own clay and uses a unique firing process. Each hand cast piece is pulled from the kiln while glowing red hot. Horse hair and other organic materials are placed on the surface and spontaneously ignite. The black designs are the carbon that is left behind. No two patterns are ever alike. Her work includes vases, pots and lamps, as well as statues depicting wildlife, horses and rodeo themes. She also creates lovely hand-loomed knitted items and custom pet memorial pendants.
