WPSU’s Patty Satalia travels to rural Huntingdon County to meet with writer, teacher and legendary potter, Jack Troy, who retired from Juniata College in 2006. Troy is wrapping up a three-day firing in the anagama kiln he and fellow potters built and operate at his home-studio.

Very well done by all involved!  Fascinating stuff!  I own several pieces of Jack’s work and two done by his students.  I use them every day.  They have a way of growing on you as time goes by.

Jack risked himself to rid me of a beautiful hornet’s nest in our yard, getting stung twice.  I had called him to tell him that it reminded me of his work.  He put it in a tree in a wooded area as he has another at home.  The hornets continued life as usual.
