Pottery Trail

Pottery Trail ( North Carolina )
I love collecting pottery and consider it to be a wonderful hobby. I developed an interest in pottery while living in North Carolina. For pottery aficionados there is no place like the pottery trail in North Carolina's Piedmont region. Attending the annual pottery festival in this area is a memorable experience.The master potters here have perfected the art of creating pieces which are beautiful yet functional. A few years ago I spent a wonderful summer day driving along the " pottery highway". It was amazing to see the potters working in quaint studios tucked away in little towns . For nearly 200 years the potters have worked in this area to keep the tradition alive. The locals are proud of this unique heritage. The North Carolina pottery center in the town of Seagrove has a wonderful collection of pottery from artists in the area. This website gives a good insight into what they have to offer. http://www.discoverseagrove.com/ I remember picking up two small pottery pieces for my home. I shall cherish my day on the pottery trail forever. I hope to be back there someday but for now I have some wonderful memories.
