The words "pottery" and "art installation" are rarely combined in the often-reserved craft community of our state, but North Carolina native Daniel Johnston is not your average potter. 

Take his experiential installation at Greenhill, a space for NC art. In it the viewer is invited to stroll through an 85 foot long constructed tunnel of his 100 enormous, beautiful, handcrafted clay pots. 

Johnston's experiential art installation is titled "Daniel Johnston/Hiroshi Sueyoshi: Sculptural Clay". It opens May 1st and will remain on display through June 10th.  All pots are for sale. Porcelain and clay artist Hiroshi teaches at the Cameron Art Museum’s Pancoe Education Center as a master artist, and in 2006 he received the NC Living Treasure award. 

With the exhibit, Daniel reveals something about the ongoing process of an artist at work in a craft medium.
