Seagrove, NC

Seagrove is a community in the NC Piedmont. Beginning in the 18th century, this small town became one of the first spots creating North Carolina stoneware pottery, mostly for utilitarian reasons. It has since morphed much beyond a few potters creating whiskey and milk jugs. Seagrove is still a small town, but one that hosts tens of thousands of visitors each year looking for the perfectly imperfect vase, pitcher, or bowl from a Seagrove potter.

Many of the potters open their studios and galleries year round to visitors, but each year on the Saturday and Sunday before Thanksgiving the potters join at one location, The Seagrove Pottery Festival. The Festival offers potters a chance to showcase their work and visitors a chance to purchase from the vast and diverse talent that Seagrove has to offer.

I went this past weekend to begin Christmas shopping and provided my fair share of support to the local Seagrove economy.

Here is what I found:
Flower Pots: Pebbles Pottery; Bowl: Enthusiasm Pottery; Brie Baker: Bristow Pottery; Chalice: unknown
