North Carolina Pottery Highway

While I was in N.C. on vacation for a week I finally made it to the 705 Pottery Highway. I had lived in N.C. prior to moving to Knoxville for over 12 years and had never been to Seagrove. Well, it ended up being a very fun day for myself and my two daughters. After visiting the museum and several pottery shops, we wanted to visit Freeman's Pottery. She specializes in miniature hand turned pottery. Here are the two I picked up! I just love these!!! My daughters also picked out a few very gorgeous ones. These are about 1 3/4" but she does many even smaller. She was a true inspiration to me. She has been in business full time for over 20 years. She does not sell online, just strictly by word of mouth, people coming to her shop home, and to several small shops. If you are ever in N.C. take a few minutes to visit the Pottery Highway!!

I live just a little south of Raleigh, NC and of course, I keep meaning to check out the Seagrove pottery but haven't yet :( Maybe one day I'll move to Alaska and come back to NC for a visit and see Seagrove. haha :)
