Michael Middleton is a local artist who has mastered the firing of local Currituck County clay and makes incredibly stunning pieces with it. Each horse hair pot contains a carbon impression of Corolla wild horse hair. Each pot is unique and one of a kind. On the bottom of each pot, you will find the name of the horse inscribed in the clay.
This beautiful vase is 7″ high and 5 1/2″ wide (all dimensions are approximate) and is highlighted by its chestnut and natural coloring. This unusual piece actually has a couple of openings in its body to add to its uniqueness (they were caused by the firing process but did not cause the piece to be unstable). Our Vivo donated his hair to be used for this piece.
Michael Middleton works closely with the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. A portion of the proceeds of each Horse Hair Pot sold is donated to the Corolla Wild Horse Fund.
