Sharing North Carolina's Clay Stories, Past and Present!

We North Carolinians have long been enchanted by our potters who are able to transform lumps of clay into objects of startling beauty. That beauty and the stories behind it, old and new, are showcased by the North Carolina Pottery Center.

Our Annual Gala

Join us as we celebrate the Pottery Center’s 20th Anniversary! Feast on fine foods and festive drinks. Enjoy sweet music as you take in the best of North Carolina’s pottery and ceramics at our silent and live auctions. This event benefits the North Carolina Pottery Center, a Seagrove-based nonprofit promoting the rich heritage and ongoing artistry of pottery in North Carolina. The gala takes place at the North Carolina Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill, NC.
