Kary Haun Graphic

Join us July 17th, 2-5 pm to meet the creative mind behind the art you’ve been admiring!

Kary Haun will be in the tasting room to share her thoughts, struggles, and her creative process. Or just have a glass of wine!

In studying and working in ceramics for 30 years, I have always been fascinated by the complex problem of integrating three essential elements of ceramic design: form, surface, and function. 

What I love most about creating functional pieces of art is the vision of their usefulness. The idea of the viewer or user having a relationship with the piece that speaks to their love of food and drink whether pouring, serving or sipping. While I am creating my work, I am very concerned with its function. At the same time, I wish to elevate the experience of everyday life to something extraordinary.

We will be safe distancing among groups.

Your guide will be David V. Brotman, Executive Director of the Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, with whom we are proud to partner on this program.

David has broad experience in environmental fieldwork, business, conflict resolution, and education. Times spent in the Shenandoah Valley as a boy and young man — camping, hiking, fishing, and canoeing — are the very roots of his environmental interests and his love of nature. David is a natural public educator and has taught all age groups in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. Subjects have included Chesapeake Bay ecology, Wild Edibles, and many more. In Yellowstone NP, he trained citizen scientists in field methods.
