Part VII : Seagrove Community Woodfiring at the North Carolina Pottery Center

North Carolina Pottery Center

Thank you to the North Carolina Pottery Center for providing their facilities to the Seagrove Community Potters' wood firing, and potluck in their educational building.  The NCPC had a successful event yesterday, with over 200 people through its doors to listen to music and an Owen/Owens exhibition catalog signing.  The Center has a wonderful historic collection, frequent exhibitions, and is very important to Potters and Collectors in general, as well as North Carolina residents.  The next exhibition is "Dan Finch and the Finch studio Potters".  Pottery has a strong heritage and foundation in North Carolina, and today's potters are continuing the tradition of handmade objects.  Become a member, and support the North Carolina Pottery Center.  Come out to the annual fundraising auction "Faces for the Center" on April 18th from 2:30 - 6:00ish.  This is truly a wonderful place. 

The kiln fired off at 9:30pm.
