More Seagrove Potteries
The second day in Seagrove we stopped by Michele Hastings and Jeff Brown pottery. Michele recommended that Gary and I go to the Jugtown Pottery since they have a pottery museum she thought we'd enjoy.
I purchased this lovely lavender bowl made by Vernon Owens. One of my favorite colors is lavender, so I just couldn't resist. The bowl is 5 x 7 inches and I love the matt color. The lowered ridge below the lip with the scallop is perfect for holding the bowl on the outside. The simple yet elegant design really appealed to me.
I met Michele through through her blog. When she and Jeff decided to move to Seagrove from New Hampshire, she contacted me about what to look for in a bus to use as a moving van. She got the idea about using a bus from my blog, isn't that cool. Since Gary and I have had four buses, I could give her all the details she needed to know to use a bus as a moving vehicle. Michele gave me this mug, which is my new favorite mug for my morning coffee, it fits my hand just perfectly. Thanks Michele, Gary and I really enjoyed visiting with you and seeting your new studio and gallery.
We ended up spending several hours looking at all the pots in the museum at Jugtown and I took many photos so I'll put them in a separate post for next time, so stay tuned.
And if you missed it, be sure to check the previous post to see some beautiful pots I acquired for my collection from Whynot Pottery and Michael Mahan.
