Kurt Hewell, a northeast Georgia folk potter was inducted into the "Living Traditions" permanent exhibition at the Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia in 2012. "There are three criteria for this recognition," said museum director Chris Brooks. "The potters must be trained by potters carrying on more than two centuries of traditional methods in the area; they must continue these traditions in their own work; and their work must be acknowledged as among the best quality of northeast Georgia folk pottery." Kurt Hewell, son of Henry Hewell, trained at the Hewell Pottery in Gillsville in Hall County and continues to create and display his work at various folk art festivals.
