If you have an old piece of Jugtown Pottery, or from anywhere in North Carolina that you are curious about, this is a great opportunity to bring it along, and learn more about it. Steve Compton will be joining the Owens family at Jugtown from 10:00-3:00 to discuss old pots and help identify them. There will be many books relating to NC pottery available for sale, including Steve’s newest book: North Carolina’s Moravian Potters: The Art and Mystery of Pottery-Making in Wachovia.
We will also have new pieces available from two firings of the Groundhog Kiln, with pieces in Salt Glaze, Frogskin, Ash Glazes, Chinese Blue as well as pieces in some of our newest glazes: Neptune Blue, Aurora, and Peacock-Chinese Blue!
