Collecting Carolina: 100 Years of Jugtown Pottery

January 21 - May 29, 2017

The potters of Jugtown continue to honor tradition and “the Busbee vision” while reinterpreting their wares with a renewed freshness for today’s consumers and collectors. This new lobby-case exhibit will highlight and showcase the quintessential forms and glazes of the Busbee era (1917–1958), the John Maré era (1958–1968), the Country Roads era (1968–1983), and the Owens family era (1983–present).

Jugtown Pottery and Steve Compton, collector and author of the book, "Jugtown Pottery 1917-2017: A Century of Art and Craft and Clay," assisted with this case exhibit.
