Life has been quite busy at lifefire pottery during 2012 and we’re excited to add some new venues for our work. Jared received 3rd place in the recent Currahee Artists Guild Spring Show and was also featured in a regional exhibition at The Bascom, in Highlands, NC from January through March.
The Currahee Military Museum in downtown Toccoa is featuring a small body of work along with the latest craze – The exclusive Camp Currahee Mug commemorating the The 17,000 soldiers of the 501st, 506th, 511th, and 517th PID who trained at Camp Toccoa during World War II.
We are also excited to participate as a vendor in the Brenau BBQ Championship this weekend, May 25-26 in Gainesville, GA. Come Friday night from 6 – 9 p.m. for preview party or anytime Saturday. For more information:
We also plan to participate again in Art In The Square in Gainesville, GA September 15 & 16th.

Wheel Throwing at Art In The Square
Our home show, The Toccoa Harvest Festival is scheduled for November 3rd & 4th in downtown Toccoa.
Our pottery classes have also expanded this year to include Tuesday and Wednesday classes. Tuesday afternoons are avaailable from 1:30 – 4:30 if you’d like to experience wheel-throwing first hand!
And finally, after all that, we hope to expand our studio and finish construction of our manabigama wood fired kiln by the end of this year! We have lofty goals here at Lifefire & we look forward to visiting with you throughout the rest of this year!
