This Saturday May 12, the 2nd Annual Behind the Scenes Pottery Crawl takes place. They have chosen 14 potteries to participate. Every pottery will have a special demonstration set up for the participants. Tickets are only $45.00 which includes food. At each pottery there will be a different delicious tasty treat served.  This is a fundraiser for their organization which helps families in the Robbins area.  Also, 15% of pottery sales from our shop and other participating pottery shops on Saturday will be donated to the NMFC.

The 2nd annual Northern Moore Family Resource Center Benefit 
- Enjoy delicious appetizers and wine at potteries

- Watch pottery demonstrations

"Spend a fun-filled Saturday meeting the artists, touring their studios, and admiring their creations.  Come check out 14 of our favorite potteries in a self-guided car tour.  Each pottery will have a unique culinary delight with wine pairing (beef tenderloin on rounds of French bread, shrimp served with remoulade and red sauces, open-faced pork sliders, an elegant almond torte, to name a few), and demonstrations focusing on different aspects of the craft – from shaping at the wheel, to glazing, to firing techniques.  Or you can roll up your sleeves and make a pot yourself. 
Last year's participants were inspired by the beautiful countryside, the world class artistic talent of Seagrove, and the unique way the featured artists live and work.  You'll never want to give a store-bought gift again.  And on Mother’s day weekend, why give Mom another tired gift?  Spend an unforgettable day with her instead! "

Participating potteries on the tour are Avery Pottery and Tileworks; Ben Owen Pottery; Blue Hen Pottery; Bulldog Pottery; Chris Luther Pottery; Dean and Martin Pottery; Frank Neef Pottery; From the Ground Up; Great White Oak Pottery; Jugtown Pottery; Luck's Ware; Old Gap Pottery; Seagrove Stoneware; Studio Touya; and Westmoore Pottery.
