I live in Randolph County, North Carolina which is home to the Seagrove area. Near Seagrove may be one of the largest concentrations of potters anywhere. This pottery heritage goes back to the 18th century. One of the oldest and best known of the traditional potteries is Jugtown. Above, Vernon Owens of Jugtown works on an earthenware jug. Everything he produces is one at a time, by hand.
