Originally from Miami, FL, I developed an interest in pottery after writing a couple of stories on potters for The Enquirer Journal in Monroe, NC. I settled in the area in the 1980s, covering Seagrove for the Courier-Tribune in Asheboro. I stepped behind the potter's wheel full time in 1986, when I opened up WILD ROSE POTTERY in Whynot, just south of Seagrove. I now own and operate FROM THE GROUND UP, just south of Seagrove. I also play Irish flute.
A quick peak after taking some bricks out of the front of the kiln shows the three large bowls up top. I hope some of you will make it to Winston-Salem Saturday for Pottery Fair on the Square at Old Salem, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
