The Potters of Seagrove are very excited and happy to be producing their own show and uniting together. As Michael Mahan said:
“This event represents a shift toward celebrating the potters of Seagrove in an atmosphere of collaboration and cooperation, working with each other to promote our trade and our way of life. I volunteered to demonstrate because it's a way of giving back to this community where I've been able to make a living doing something I love, and to share that spirit of living and working in clay with people who come to visit the potters of Seagrove. “
