Free with general admission. Gather around the Barker Brother’s Pottery Shop to watch how delicate clay pots transform into beautiful, durable wares using centuries-old techniques. Look past the flames as they swirl around the orange, glowing pots. The Barker family stokes the kiln with wood continuously from dawn until about 3 p.m., steadily raising the kiln’s temperature to 2,300 degrees.
