Jim & Linda Winegar*
Linda and Jim Winegar are professional potters and co-owners of Winegar Pottery. Both graduates of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, they have been creating with clay for more than 45 years. Their pottery studio is located in a 100+ year old barn on their rural property in Graysville PA. Most of their pieces are thrown on the potter’s wheel and often enhanced with hand-formed leaves and acorns. Influenced by their natural surroundings, they often hand-carve their claywork with images of leaves and floral patterns. Both Jim and Linda are members of the Pittsburgh Craftsmen’s Guild and the PA Guild of Craftsmen. Jim served on the Board of Directors of the Pittsburgh Craftsmen's Guild for many years. For the past 4 years they have owned and operated Artbeat, a gallery in Waynesburg, PA, with fine art & fine crafts from over 80 regional artists and craftsmen.
