Seagrove Potters celebrate American Craft Week:
For over 200
years Seagrove potters have spent their days turning, sculpting,
assembling, glazing, painting, carving, firing, experimenting,
testing and perfecting their craft. They create beautiful
imaginative pieces of art and sturdy functional wares.
Most of their
creations add beauty to the world and serve a functional purpose at
the same time. Seagrove pottery has been a part of the American
craft tradition for generations, so it only makes sense that
Seagrove pottery shops would participate in American Craft Week,
which runs thru the first two weekends in October..
Carolina Pottery Center is partnering with several shops for a
special event on October 11th in honor of American
Craft Week. Turn in a machine made item to the NC Pottery Center
between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and receive a coupon good for 20% off a
replacement item in one of the participating shops. The machine
made items could include anything from machine made coffee cups and
flowerpots ,to plastic bowls and vases.
participating pottery shops include: Bluestone, Carolina Crockery,
Crystal King Pottery , Eck McCanless , From the Ground Up, Ginger
Bread House, Great White Oak, Humble Mill, Jugtown, Keith
Martindale, Kings, Lucks, Lufkin , Nichols, Frank Neef, RockHouse,
Seagrove Stoneware, Snowhill, Walton's, & Westmoore. The North
Carolina Pottery Center will have a complete listing of
participating shops on the day of the event.
Potters Association and the NC Pottery Center are proud to be
American Craft Week sponsors.
