One of the many functional and creative pieces produced by the Stahl's at the Thomas and Alice Stahl House and Museum at 6826 Corning Road in Powder Valley. The 25th anniversary of the Stahl Pottery festival will be held this weekend June 16th, 2012 with a Gala on Friday night June 15th, 2012 from 6PM-9PM (tickets Required). The property was home to three generations of "redware" potters - Charles, Thomas and Isaac, and Russell Stahl and artist Carrie Stahl Schultz. the family produced "Redware" pottery, a specific type of low-fired, porous earthenware, received its name from the distinctive color of the native clays which the potter dug, processed, and turned on the potter¿s wheel. Redware was an important Pennsylvania German product, first as a utilitarian ware and later as a decorative art.
