Seagrove, The Pottery Capital Of The U.S.

Seagrove hosts the nation’s largest community of working potters—individuals of national and international reputation. Some families trace their craft bloodlines through nine generations of potters. Seagrove offers visitors an unprecedented experience. Tour and meet 70-plus working potters at work. Studios dot the countryside, tucked among barns, cattle fields, and country gas stations.  November’s Celebration of Seagrove Potters brings together roughly 70 artisans exhibiting everything from tableware to high-end works of art at the Historic Luck’s Cannery. The Celebration of Spring, held annually in April, features more than 65 potters and includes a pottery sale, special events, studios tours, and demonstrations. For the ultimate immersion, stay overnight at one of Seagrove’s bed and breakfast inns: Seagrove Stoneware Inn and Duck Smith House.
