We have started a new blog. It is called Three Corners Clay. I will be posting about events in our community in which we live.
There are many reasons that make the working Seagrove Pottery Comunity unique, and one of them is our location. The Seagrove Potters are situated geographically in the center of the State at the corner of three counties (Randolph, Moore, Montgomery), hence the name Three Corners Clay. There are some potters with their property in two different counties. We live in Montgomery County and we are about a mile or so drive from Randolph and Moore.
I think it is a great opportunity for all of us, and has many positive benefits to be part of three different counties that can work together.What does this have to do with the new blog we have begun? Well, it is something I am testing out in wanting to having a central place to post activities of the working Seagrove potters, and other events that happen around here, or places to visit when people travel here to central North Carolina.
Today we posted about a ground hog kiln firing that will be taking place at the North Carolina Pottery Center this coming Saturday. There will also be two kiln openings this Friday here in Seagrove. Ben Owens III will have an opening on Friday evening, and Johnston and Genthesis Art Pottery is have a kiln opening on Friday and Saturday. There is the annual peach festival taking place in Candor on Saturday as well. The Seagrove Pottery shops are open for visitors daily. For a quiet rural area there always is something to do here.
As the Grateful Dead sing..."Nothin shakin on shakedown street. used to be the heart of town. Dont tell me this town aint got no heart. you just gotta poke around."
