The NC Pottery Center is pleased to present The Busbee Legacy marking one hundred years of the Busbees’ influence on our state’s pottery. Jacques and Juliana Busbee introduced classical ceramics from around the world to local Seagrove potters and fundamentally changed how Seagrove pots were designed, made, and marketed. Their new ideas were essential to the survival of Seagrove pottery in the first half of the 20th century and are still relevant to potters and collectors today.

Curated by the North Carolina Pottery Center exhibition committee and friends.

Please join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, November 12, 2016, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The reception is open to the public and free of charge.

This exhibition runs from November 12, 2016 – April 22, 2017.

A catalog will be available for purchase with this exhibition.
