Eck McCanless is a second generation potter and musician/songwriter who hails from Seagrove, North Carolina.
Eck’s focus is on Agateware, which he makes by turning multiple colors of clay on the wheel at the same time to create a spiral. Once the piece is leather hard, he carves it to reveal patterns hiding within the walls of the pot. It’s best to see it in person to fully understand this style. Eck, being a performer at heart, loves to demonstrate for anyone who visits his pottery shop.
