Why I [Heart] the NC Pottery Center

Just got this card in the mail and it reminded me how much and why I love the NC Pottery Center. Here's a beautiful facility that is home to a wonderful collection of pots, old and new. Here's a venue for a showing of pots from our great state's pottery tradition and how these pots have been interpreted by the Garner's! If you'd like to be a part of this wonderful organization, they would love to have you as a member.

As a matter of fact, if you are looking for something to see and do today(Saturday), and you're in the vicinity of Seagrove, go by the Center and see the kiln being fired TODAY! The Garner's are firing the groundhog kiln at the NCPC today with their Webster reproduction work for the show! Get a good look at the pots through the firebox before they are displayed in next month's show.

I hope to get out and see the show, maybe try to get over for the opening with the family on August 14th. We are planning a getaway some time soon. It'll be good to see all my cousins over in Seagrove!
