Glenn Dair (b. 1948)

Covered Jar
Glenn Dair was born in 1948. His interest in pottery was born during his senior year of college. Though not fond of artist statements, Dair says, "I approach the work as a dialog or a partnered dance, listening and following as much as directing."Dair nurtured and developed his career in Georgia, earning an MFA degree from the University of Georgia in Athens. He also held professional positions at his alma mater, at Happy Valley Pottery in Oconee County, and at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta. His works have been exhibited throughout the state and in other parts of the southeast. Some notable exhibitions include those at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia in Atlanta, Macon Arts Gallery in Macon, and Hudgins Art Center in Duluth. His works are also included in the collections at the Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
Three of his clay works, all titled Covered Jar, are part of Georgia's State Art Collection.
