Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman Learning To Make Pottery is Less Like the Scene From “Ghost” and More Like a Comedy Skit


Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman visited the set of “Pickler & Ben” Wednesday morning and got a lesson in pottery making from Nashville’s The Clay Lady, Danielle McDaniel.

If you hear the words “pottery making” and you conjure up images from the 1990 blockbuster movie “Ghost” with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, don’t. You know the scene—Patrick’s character, Sam saddles up behind Demi’s character, Molly, and guides her hands, ever so gently, over the wet clay.

Well Kimberly, Kelly Pickler and Ben Aaron’s experience was nothing like that. Their experience was much more hilarious than sexy. And that’s a good thing.

One thing we learned from the show is that Kimberly’s father is a pottery making whiz and has pottery items available at Cracker Barrel.

“I bet you have a whole new found respect for him,” Kellie said to Kimberly.

“Yes I do, my sweet daddy,” Kimberly said.” He’s so cute. He makes pottery in his overalls every time.”

With that said, you would think Kimberly would be a master at the craft. However,this was actually the first time the Georgia native ever tried making pottery. And the results were hilarious.

After a sligh mishap with Kimberly’s bowl, the Clay Lady cut down her size prompting Kimberly to exclaim, “It’s ok, we’re going to turn it into a plate.” Always the positive thinker.
