Vernon Owens, recipient of the NC Folk Heritage Award and the NEA National Heritage Fellowship, wife Pam, son Travis and daughter Bayle are the potters of Jugtown Pottery. Established in 1917, this working pottery and craft shop is located in a grove of trees and bamboo just off Busbee Road, a road named for Jacques and Juliana Busbee, the founders of Jugtown. Both artists with a love of craft and form, the Busbees created Jugtown Pottery, melding forms from ancient traditions with those developed in North Carolina. In 1917 they created The Village Store and Tea Room in New York City, and in 1922 they began stamping each piece with the circular Jugtown Ware stamp. Jugtown Pottery thrives on the aesthetic foundation laid out by the Busbees.
