Jim McFarland is a native of Canton, Georgia, and he has lived in the Buffington community for almost all of his life. He is a graduate of Buffington Elementary School, Cherokee High School, Reinhardt College and the University of Georgia. For many moons he has collected the art and antiques of his beloved Cherokee County. In this regard, he has developed a singular view of things. At the urging of others, he has lifted the bushel off that little light of his, and he now presents “The Potters of Orange” to the people of Cherokee County.
