Vessels of fired clay have been produced by nearly every culture for millennia. 200 Years of Seagrove heritage began long before the American Revolution as a product of necessity. Potters were farmers part of the year and produced functional pieces of ware, a plate for a family table, or a bowl or pickle jar or jug. The piece was likely fired in a ground hog kiln of the potter’s making and glazed with a transparent glaze of the time. Due to the high quality of the local clay, the plank road passing through the town, and later, the railroad, Seagrove became known for its pottery.
