Art potter Tony Hayes combines antique bottles with his folk art jugs. He had a great display, very dramatic! He's a nice friendly guy, and a very talented sculptor/potter, working in the Southern Folk Art style. Better start collecting his pieces now, while he's still an emerging artist. Check out his website FLOYD'S FORK POTTERY 

These 2 showcases held some of Tony's smaller art pieces.

Below are some of the larger face jugs that Tony has created.

You can see what a wide-ranging mix of merchandise there was at the 2012 Columbus Show. Thanks again to Joe Hardin and Jamie Houdeshell for putting on a great show. Plan now to attend next year's show (email Joe for info: jkcollectables@gmail.com).
