"Fallen From Grace" Face Jug


Charles Lisk (American, 1952 - present)

After graduating from Appalachian State University, Charlie Lisk worked for Pinehurst Pottery in Moore County before moving to Vale, where he met Burlon Craig. Influenced by Craig, Lisk began to fire with a wood kiln, adopted ash glazes, and began to make swirlware. Lisk is also known for his expressive face jugs. This example has the inscriptions “Fallen from Grace” on its front and “The Devil Was Cast Out from Heaven” on its back.
