Eufaula potter to be featured


— EUFAULA — Robert (Bob) Carder, a Eufaula pottery artist, will be at Our Favorite, 127 N. Main St. from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday demonstrating his work as a potter. Carder will have his potter’s wheel in the gallery and will be creating a piece of pottery as customers watch. Carder has his pottery on display at Our Favorite Place, a Made in Oklahoma art gallery and products store.

“Clay is a wonderful medium of the earth and from the earth that can be manipulated to an art,” Carder said in a media release. “I was introduced to clay/potter nearly 50 years ago, and it has turned in to a long standing love affair. I have met, studied with, and taught many wonderful people during my quest to understand and produce objects of clay.”

Carder’s most significant award for work in clay was an honorable mention at the Philbrook Art Center at an annual exhibition of Oklahoma artists.

Our Favorite Place is an Oklahoma Art Gallery and Made in Oklahoma products store owned by Karen Weldin. Carder is one of 45 artists and 46 vendors currently exhibiting and displaying their art and products in the gallery and store.
