This digital exhibition was made possible through the partnership of the Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences in Rocky Mount, NC and the North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove, NC. “North Carolina Pottery” is a collaboration of pottery curated from the Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences’ Permanent Art Collection and a wonderful knowledge base about the history of pottery from the North Carolina Pottery Center.
Before you launch into exploring the pottery on display, please take a tour of the North Carolina Pottery Center, listen to the condensed history of North Carolina Pottery, learn why North Carolina is so rich in clay, and discover some unique potters by clicking on the videos below. A special thanks goes out to Lindsey Lambert, Executive Director of the North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove, North Carolina, for taking time out of his very busy schedule to bring you these videos. – Alicyn Wiedrich
