Cleater James "C.J." Meaders, Jr. (1921-2003) of Centerville, GA made pottery all his life. Although not a fulltime potter until his retirement, he was involved with pottery production since his childhood at his father's shop.

Proudly carrying on the Meaders folk pottery tradition, CJ was reknowned for his superb tobacco spit glaze.  CJ is responsible for a wide variety of  pieces including face jugs, vases and pitchers to name just a few.  CJ was one of the last potters to use the old fashion wood burning kiln.  His pieces fired in a wood-burning kiln are some of the finest examples of traditional Southern folk pottery available today
