Harpe Consulting and its associates not only organize, plan, and implement programs and projects, we also serve as active participants.  How can we encourage others to spend their time planning and participating in special events, projects, and programs if we can’t show them how much these activities mean to us?  This is not a job to us, it is a way of life!  We want to participate in events, projects, programs, and special events the we help make happen. 

Harpe Consulting is a major supporter of the preservation of Catawba Valley pottery. We attend kiln openings in the Catawba Valley, and seek to document this tradition.

Harpe Consulting is proud to participate with Melany Dawn Crouse of Melany Dawn Crouse Photography and Brian Dedmond on the upcoming book Images of America: Catawba Valley Pottery with Arcadia Publishing Company.    Crouse and Dedmond are both active collectors of Catawba Valley pottery, specifically face jugs, and over half of our upcoming book will spotlight the work of contemporary Catawba Valley potters whose mission is to continue this famed  two hundred year tradition.  Collections of both historic and contemporary Catawba Valley pottery can be seen at the Lincoln County Museum of History, Catawba County Museum of History, and the North Carolina Pottery Center.
