On July 7th, a 100-year flash flood swept through Pot Hollow at Ghost Ranch and flooded everything in the arroyo of Yeso Creek. Pot Hollow is virtually destroyed. Short House, the nearby building used by glass-makers, fabric painters, other arts programs, and occasionally by potters for overflow events is gone. The metal workers studio is gone. The water level was about 3.5 feet. NMPCA has been holding workshops in Pot Hollow since the 1970’s.

After the flood:
Here are a few pictures after the flood:
Debra Hepler, the Ranch Director, has promised Barbara Campbell, the NMPCA Ghost Ranch coordinator, that the Ranch will have a ceramic art studio in the future.
Help us imagine how that should look. We’ll post more information as it is received.
