New Salem Pottery

New Salem Pottery, located south of Greensboro near Randleman, is owned and operated by Hal Pugh and Eleanor Minnock-Pugh. Hal and Eleanor produce a variety of original redware and stoneware pottery in their workshop/studio. They also specialize in reproducing eighteenth and nineteenth century plain and decorated redware. Their pottery has been displayed and used by universities, historic sites, the movie industry, and living history museums throughout the United States and abroad. Hal and Eleanor turn and decorate their pottery on their family’s property, which is the site of an original eighteenth century Quaker pottery run by William Dennis.
