Nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina, Township10 offers artists, writers and art professionals an intimate, private retreat to deepen their creative practice.
Formerly the home of East Fork Pottery, the property has a restored farmhouse, a newly-constructed bunkhouse, an open pavilion, a broken-down tobacco barn, and generous studio facilities with a focus on ceramics.
More than a collection of structures, this green mountain cove has a spirit and a presence that invites contemplation, making, and aliveness.
Township10 is reserved for artists and writers to dream into and cultivate what they need from a residency.
Township10 is the vision of Marjorie Dial, a studio artist whose practice includes ceramic sculpture, print-making, and writing. Dial grew up in Columbia, SC and now calls Portland, OR home. She received a MFA in Craft from Oregon College of Art and Craft.
Dial develops works through research that includes psychology, poetry and spiritual practices. Her interest lies in creating markers and ritual objects that function on a psychological level.
Township10 extends and embodies her commitment to art practice and community––the intimacy of it, the intensity, the transformational qualities.
