History and demonstration of Pottery by Bill Lynch.

Bill Lynch has been making pottery in this “creek-place” since he and Sharon bought the old mill property in 1978.  Sampsel’s Mill was built in 1818 and ran on water-power until it closed in 1951 and fell into disrepair.  In 1989 the mill was restored and adapted for pottery making and sales. People have been making pottery for thousands of years, and there’s a magic in how pottery brings people together…makers and users, givers and receivers.  Bill won several awards for his work, including the Booth of Distinction Award at the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts in State College, and the Phil Patterson Award in Ceramics at the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen’s Franklin and Marshall Show.
