Beautifully curated (but I only took one picture, ha!) space.. very informative and welcoming! Great first stop before hitting the numerous pottery studios along the highway.
If you don't know much about The seagrove potters, this is a great place to learn. It's also a great place to figure out which potters you'd like to see by looking at some of the exhibits. The people here are very knowledgeable and the displays are beautiful. Rich with history, this area is a must-see.
