Why The Foltz Folklife Foundation?

The Foltz Folklife Foundation has been founded by the extended Foltz Pottery family, striving to preserve the warmth of Ned & Gwen Foltz’s hospitality and the joy of their creativity for future generations. Their passion for folk art and folklife has been a blessing to all who have stepped into their home or shop.
