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.
The Celebration of Seagrove Potters - a premier show of 57 Seagrove Potteries held at the old Luck's cannery in the town of Seagrove - is this weekend. Here's a sample of the latest work we just unloaded from the wood kiln and will be taking to the show.
Hope to see you there.
