Thanks for visiting our CraftAdventure travel blog! Our names are Coty Lovelady and Johnny Eckerd. We are sophomores at Birmingham-Southern College doing a project for our school's January Interim term, a month-long 'semester' with one class. We chose to contract our own class, and decided on Southern Craft Art as our subject of interest. There were a few reasons for this, the most important being that my (Johnny) father was a glass blower for the majority of my young life (now retired), and his connections made the project feasible. For the month of January, we will travel the South and visit its Craft Artists, documenting their work and process. We will post interviews, photos, and videos of these artists for your enjoyment. We're letting the project take us where it will, but ultimately hope to illuminate a larger overall idea of Craft Art's position and significance in society, as well as the sheer raw talent of those who have devoted their lives to their art. Enjoy!
