The Seagrove, NC area is one of the largest communities of potters consisting of 90 to 100 potteries in a 20 miles radius. Having the longest continual history of pottery making in the United States, the pottery area was settled in the late 1700s of mostly English and German decent. The Seagrove Pottery area is located in central North Carolina and includes Randolph, Moore, Montgomery and Lee counties. Untouched by urban growth, the area is simple beautiful and is located just east of the Uwharrie National Forest. It is like going back in time driving along the back roads to reach the different pottery shops. In fact, a lot of the pottery shops have picnic tables for visitors to picnic and just enjoy the serenity of the area. While the tradition of Seagrove pottery began more than 200 years ago, there is a unique blend of potters - some are the eighth and ninth generations of potter families, some settled in the area from the 1960s and 1970s “hippie” generation and some are new potters. What brings them together is their love for making some of the most beautiful and unique pottery in the world. With the wide range of styles from traditional to contemporary, I am really excited about being able to bring you the opportunity to acquire some of this beautiful pottery.
I sell new pieces from four area potteries: Cagle Road Pottery, Piney Woods Pottery, O’Quinn Pottery and Fat Beagle Pottery. Each with their own unique style, I try to bring you a variety of pieces. All items are in my possession so there will be no delay in shipping. However, if you have any questions about possibly other pieces, don’t hesitate to e-mail me.
If you ever get the chance to visit the Seagrove Area, there are many events throughout the year including the traditional spring and fall kiln openings. Just check out the Seagrove Area Potters Association at www.DiscoverSeagrove.com
