collectible carolers

December 5, 2011

Tom and Judy Touchtone are part of a celebrated Southern tradition. They are modest, self-taught artists.

Based in Armuchee, near Georgia’s Berry College, the Touchstones have taught themselves to make wooden bowls and picture frames.

In 1998, they turned to pottery and made, among other things, face jugs.

About three years ago, they created carolers, using homemade glazes and red Georgia clay, which is highly suitable for pottery making.

The animated carolers with their dark green robes were an instant hit among collectors and others with a keen eye for folk art.

Now, the popular carolers sport red robes. The couple also makes angels in pink robes.

Carolers or angels are $65 each and a choir of six is $300 at The Bilt-House shops in Buckhead, Roswell and Serenbe. Check www.thebilt-house.com.
