North Carolina is home to many pottery aficionados who are remarkable people not just for their collections, but also for who they are as people and for the passion they share for preserving, collecting, and sharing knowledge about our state’s rich pottery tradition. Many of those collectors have given pieces to the North Carolina Pottery Center over the years, something which the center deeply appreciates.
“A Collector’s Collection” focuses on forty exemplary art pottery pieces from the collection of Bunny Schroeer. As is the case in all museums, large and small, there is never enough space to permanently display everything held in permanent collections. Many of the pieces in this collection will be on display long-term at the center, but we felt all these extraordinary pieces needed to be displayed together for a bit of time to showcase the remarkable skills of our state’s early art potters, as well as hopefully inspire another generation to collect, learn, and continue enhancing our understanding and knowledge of North Carolina pottery.
