Promoting public awareness & appreciation of an ongoing tradition in North Carolina.
The North Carolina Pottery Center showcases the remarkable history and on-going tradition of pottery making in North Carolina. Located in Seagrove, one of the state's key historical and contemporary pottery producing regions, the Center is your first stop in exploring North Carolina's rich clay heritage. The state's pottery communities range from the mountains to the sea, and it is that wide-ranging diversity of styles, techniques, and history that the Center preserves and protects. Our permanent exhibit of more than eight hundred pieces of pottery, artifacts, and photographs traces North Carolina's pottery history from prehistoric Native Americans to the present. The display interprets the impact of social, technological, and economic change on the state's most unique cultural resource. Changing exhibitions of historical and contemporary work are also on display.
The North Carolina Pottery Center will be open on Good Friday, April 3, and closed on Easter Monday, April 6, 2015.
