We are happy to be featured in Jean Anderson’s new cookbook “Kiln to Kitchen”. This newly released cookbook has 76 selected favorite recipes contributed by the twenty-four selected North Carolina potters.  "Jean Anderson's new cookbook deliciously brings together two of her lifelong passions—great food and North Carolina pottery.” 

Jean Anderson will  be signing copies of new UNC Press cookbook "Kiln to Kitchen" this coming Saturday -September 14, 2019- at McIntyre's Book Store in Fearrington Village, NC at 2 p.m. There'll be a terrific door prize -- a lidded casserole from NC Blue Ridge potters. 

......Durham potter Julie Jones will be bringing her superb Kimchi Deviled Eggs for you to sample. Also coming, Jean's friend NYC friend Maria Reuge, a former Gourmet magazine editor, and Elaine Maisner, the UNC Press editor, who worked closely with author Jean Anderson "Kiln to Kitchen" through months of production. Jean Anderson is very proud of this cookbook and feels it is the most beautiful cookbook she has ever had..... says Jean, "And that, I can tell you, is a lot of cookbooks." 

We submitted three recipes, M.J.'s Greek Potato Salad, Cousins Granola, and Bulldog's Thai Curry.

We will carry "Kiln to Kitchen" in our pottery shop.

From Amazon Review by Robert Holmes, "Any time Jean Anderson comes out with a new cook book, it's a special occasion. Her newest KILN TO KITCHEN, is no exception. Photography is outstanding, and there are a multitude of wonderful recipes from North Carolina potters. I intend to cook my way through this beautiful book. You can always count on Anderson's recipes to succeed because she triple tests each and every one. Her directions are clear and concise. This just might be her most beautiful book so far."

Breaking News: New Bulldog Pottery Website

Breaking News: New Bulldog Pottery Website - See it While it is Current.

Hi! We are super thrilled to announce our new Bulldog Pottery website! Definitely a labor of love. This year we will be working towards listing some of our pottery pieces online for sale through the website. For now, we have a select group of cups and mugs listed on our Etsy shop Bulldog Art Pottery. We always welcome people to our Bulldog Pottery shop in Seagrove, North Carolina, but decided it is time for us to enter the 21st century and offer our ceramic works online. It is pretty awesome to have this opportunity to reach pottery lovers from all over the country.

This past April weekend was the Celebration of Spring Seagrove Potters Kiln Openings. The weekend was absolutely beautiful. GroundLion Brewing was set up here to serve tastes of their Creme Ale which received rave reviews from the beer connoisseurs attending the kiln opening. GroundLion Brewing will be opening a taproom here in Seagrove, North Carolina at the Historic Luck's Cannery.

This year we plan to take a break from hosting our special pottery event in Seagrove Cousins in Clay. We have postponed our Cousins in Clay event until next year, 2020 (May 30-31, 2020). Reason being we have a family trip planned with my (Samantha's) family, both my niece and nephew will be graduating, nephew from high school and niece from college. It is time to celebrate!

Save the date for "2019 Mountain Cousins" at Michael Kline Pottery! On August 31 and September 1, 2019. Head to the mountains to visit with us and Michael Kline and Kyle Carpenter, Courtney Martin, Dan Finnegan and Becca Jane Koehler.
