"Wood Fired" © 2019 by Art Howard; do not reproduce



We're a tight-knit community of potters in the Seagrove, North Carolina area. We fire some or all of our work in wood fire kilns.

Some of us can trace our family history back hundreds of years to farmers who used the local clay to craft wares from clay. Some learned the craft by apprenticing with local potters. Others have been drawn to the community after studying in faraway places like Estonia and Japan; or at Alfred College in New York and the High Mowing School in New Hampshire; or closer-by at East Carolina University and N.C. State University. We continue to learn from and support one another as artists.

Our website is a way for us to reach out to you as a community. We want you to know about our book, Controlled Burn. And we'll update "What's New" to let you know what we're thinking and doing—so check back often! Check out our "New Events" page to let you know about our upcoming Seagrove Wood Fire NC Weekend Pottery Tour (June 1 and 2, 2019) and other events we plan to host over time.

We each have studios and kilns that are available for you to visit in Seagrove, either by appointment or during business hours (click on the photos on the "Our Potters" page for details). Please see the map below for location information and directions.

Thanks for stopping by! We look forward to your next visit.
