Jugtown Pottery 1917-2017: A Century of Art & Craft in Clay

A century ago, a modestly successful Raleigh portrait and landscape painter named Jacques Busbee arrived by train in Seagrove, North Carolina, not knowing that his future, and the history of pottery-making in the state, was about to change forever. 

 Jugtown Pottery 1917-2017 tells the entire story of the founding and success of his and Juliana Royster Busbee’s remarkable folkcraft enterprise. The author’s in-depth research leaves no stone unturned when describing how this improbable venture in a most unlikely setting left its indelible mark on a remote Southern community.
