Old Pottery Identification Day and Kiln Opening

October 21, 2023 - October 21, 2023

10:00-12:00 and 1:00-3:00 

Old Pottery Identification Day is a fun annual event at Jugtown Pottery. The Owens family and Steve Compton, a NC Pottery scholar and author of numerous pottery books and studies, will be on hand to identify and discuss old pots.  If you have old pieces of NC pottery (you may bring up to 4) that you’d like to learn more about, bring them to Jugtown, then stay to see what others bring – we always have several unusual pieces show up! The morning session is from 10-12 and the afternoon session from 1-3.   We have a selection of Steve’s NC pottery books in the Sales Cabin.


This fun day coincides with new pieces that will be out of the wood kiln. We will be firing the historic Groundhog kiln and new pots will be in the Sales Cabin for this event as well. We will have new pieces in Salt Glaze, Frogskin, Ash Glazes as well as several copper glazes. Each year this is a fun event and we look forward to seeing everyone!


Sales Cabin Open Regular Hours 8:30-5:00


Pottery ID will be from 10:00 – 12:00 & 1:00 – 3:00
