I consider myself as much a preservationist as a potter.  My now-45-year journey as a potter began with lessons from a neighbor, continued through a B.A. in Art, then with my skills vastly improved by two apprenticeships, my husband and I founded Westmoore Pottery in 1977.  Through pottery I have been drawn into history.  My goal is to practice and preserve styles that were used from the years 1600 to around 1850.  I am especially interested in the pottery that was being made in North Carolina from 1755 through the 1840s. My wares are used as furnishings and in education programs of many museums and living history programs, as well as in historically based films.  Westmoore’s museum quality accurate pottery can serve as a bridge to the past.
