A Family of Potters

Jacques and Juliana Busbee created Jugtown in 1917. The tradition they began has been continued and developed by the Owens family, Vernon and Pam, their son Travis and daughter Bayle. I visited on a beautiful November morning as they were finishing the firing of a wood fired groundhog kiln at their pottery in Northern Moore County near Seagrove, North Carolina.
