One of a few places our church group visited in Seagrove. Good selection of pottery and other gifts. Interesting museum located on the grounds. Worth a visit as several potters works are represented and many others are located nearby.

Got to go to the Pottery Capital of N.C...literally 100's of potters..each different and unique. Wonderful artisans...small shops, big shops, but all willing to tell you about their work. Will definitely be going back!

This historically important pottery is also, for my money, one of the best in Seagrove. We met Pam Owens (she and her husband Vernon bought back the pottery after some years of its being out of family ownership) and her son Travis, who were both...More

Enjoyed the varied selection available in this pottery shop. Not only pottery pieces but lamps and wooden puzzles for kids, special soaps, lots of pumpkin themed pieces.

I've traveled to many parts of the world and have collected pottery from various places. The Owens family of Jugtown, hands down, produces some of the finest pieces I've ever seen . . . and at extremely reasonable prices to boot. The Jugtown Pottery is...More
