A square peg in a round hole is how Ron Newsome has described himself for more than 30 years. Newsome bega his adult life as a helicopter pilot in the army but while stationed in Washington found a new passion. "My wife (Lynn) and I went to the Blue Herron Gallery and F. Carlton Ball had his work on display," Newsome said. " I saw the pottery and thought I could do that." The Randolph County potter uses an electric wheel and his porcelain all comes from southeastern clay.
