Seagrove Pottery in the Blogosphere

"Playing in the Mud with the Seagrove Potters"
with Tryon T. Turtle

This is a recent blogpost about a visit to the Seagrove Potters
....."I really learned a lot of new stuff about mud last weekend. Those potters have been making bowls, face jugs (can’t remember if those jugs hold spirits or scare off spirits!), bird houses, dinnerware, Christmas ornaments, pie plates, decorative wall tiles, and much more for over 200 years. A few of the people we met  are descendants of the potters who came to Seagrove in the 1700’s to dig up good dirt and mud and clay for making pots and bowls.  Some of the potters still use that local mud for pots and glazes."......
