As a continuation of the local pottery tradition, the Doctor Arthur and Esther Goldberg Groundhog Kiln was built in 2011. It is a traditional wood-burning kiln similar to those used over 200 years ago in this area.
Today the Edgefield Pottery tradition continues into the 21st century using the same clay that brought potters initially to this region. The kiln is fired three times a year using Southern Yellow Pine to reach temperatures of over 2400 degrees. The kiln is an extension of the Old Edgefield Pottery studio, where pots of this tradition are made and sold. Pots are sold straight from the Groundhog Kiln firings and are available for purchase at the studio as well.
