Luce Artist Biography

Cheever Meaders's father, John Milton, founded Meaders Pottery in 1893 in Mossy Creek, Georgia. Cheever and his brothers---Wiley, Caulder, Cleater, and Casey---all helped in the pottery, using locally dug clay and an old mule-powered mill that, according to Cheever, "ain't as fast as grinding it with a machine, but I don't care about hurrying anymore" (The Meaders Family, North Georgia Potters, 1967, Smithsonian Folklife Studies).
