Carl Block has been making face jugs for as long as we have been in Waxahachie, Texas. That would be since 1987. He is one of the first folks we met when we moved to town and opened a shop.
Carl is familiar with the Southern tradition of face jug making; combine that with his love of color and his never-ending imagination and you get a man who can't quit turning out some amazing pottery!
If he's not turning jugs, he's hanging out with his sweet family, riding his bike or searching out the newest mandolins on the market.
Carl is in our current exhibit up through April 2nd. His work in the gallery looks amazing.
