[... We are Whynot Pottery, we moved to Whynot NC in 1976 to live on the family farm and raise small livestock. We ended up fully embracing the pottery of the Seagrove area. Working together for the past forty years we have developed a style of work and palette of glazes to complement the clay beneath. Acacia Art Tile came about in 2009. It was a concept first put together by Meredith and her sister Lee Lewis. After the loss of her sister Lee, Meredith slowly worked into the tiles on her own. All the tiles are hand-rolled and hand-cut, after drying and firing, they are decorated to create images of the things around us, flowers from the garden, praying mantis, lizards, an added layer of tiles are the giraffes and sheep, with a whimsical point of view they have quickly become favorites....]

We are preparing to re-open our store.

Infection numbers have decreased and since people have become accustomed to behavior that minimizes the risk of infection for themselves and others, we decided that it is time to re-open our store.

Starting March 20, 2021

Whynot Pottery will be open five days a week.

Tuesday – Saturday  10 A.M. until 4 P.M.

We will still insist on masks worn properly and distancing .

Sanitizer will be available.

Groups travelling together in the same vehicle are welcome to enter the store together. 

Our space is small and will not accommodate more than two persons at a time if those two persons are not traveling together.

On a busy day you may need to wait a few minutes to allow others to complete their visit.

Other times we may be available by appointment.

Email us or call. If you call and no one answers we may be too muddy to pick up the phone but if you leave a message, we will return your call, often within minutes.

If you are planning days in advance email us at [email protected] or call (336) 873-9276 and Leave a message indicating when you would like to visit.

I’ve been having some fun with small jars lately.
