Welcome

My name is Terance Painter and I have been a fulltime potter since 1980. My work consists of functional wheelthrown stoneware and porcelain in a variety of colorful glazes. I also specialize in bas relief landscapes applied to the surfaces of vases, jars, and tiles for wall hanging.

My studio, the Different Drummer Pottery, is in an old log cabin located on US Hwy 19 (Soco Rd) in the middle of Maggie Valley, NC just a few minutes from I40 exit 20. My work area is always open for guests to come in and watch. Come on in and find out more about me and my work.

Centered

My wife Anita and I are pleased to present our book “Centered, inspiration from the hands of the potter”. This is our own message of hope and inspiration, the result of 25 years of pondering at the potter’s wheel.
