North Carolina pottery


This past weekend we visited Seagrove, a town in pretty much the exact geographic center of North Carolina that's known as the pottery capital of the state (or the world, depending on who's telling). With over 100 potteries in the area, there's definitely a lot of creativity in this area. We visited five or six potteries and a couple of co-ops, and it didn't take long for me to determine my favorite potter. I ended up with several pieces, including some soup bowls, a cobbler dish, some coffee mugs and a couple of square plates. I can't wait to go back and get more!
