Hand-craftsmanship

In the heart of Seagrove, North Carolina is a rustic pottery studio where art and nature become one. The beauty of the countryside – its rich colors, textures and shapes – are captured into clay for a lifetime. Scott and Bobbie create each piece paying particular attention to details. They begin by individually handcrafting each piece using a speckled brown or white stoneware clay. Their glazes are made using the highest quality of non-toxic and lead-free ingredients. The pottery is fired to a very high temperature ensuring it will be exceptionally durable for daily use. Each finished piece is dishwasher, microware and oven safe.

Meet the Artisans

Most people only wish they could follow their dreams, but potters Scott and Bobbie Thomas have made it a reality. Together they combine their talents to create a unique variety of functional and decorative stoneware pottery. By working in tandem they offer a level of skill resulting in pieces that are warm and emanate the natural beauty of their surroundings.

Scott and Bobbie’s artistic interests complement each others’ style.

Scott enjoys turning on the potter’s wheel. His large turned platters, bowls, and pitchers have a traditional shape while his vases have a much more decorative appeal. Once his pieces are made, Bobbie adds the finishing touches, which includes glazing and firing.

Bobbie enjoys turning smaller items, but her passion lies with hand-building. Using flat pieces of clay she creates a variety of trays and platters. She embellishes her work by hand-painting, adding sculpted flowers or using handmade clay stamps creating an original piece of art.

Customers love Bobbie’s whimsical tri-footed serving pieces. Her lamps, planters and custom tiled mirrors make a great addition to any home or patio décor.

  • This was my favorite Potter that we saw all day. It was off the main road, just keep going on 705......such a pretty studio and grounds!  more »
  • We enjoyed our visit very much. Inside the shop is beautiful pottery and outside the shop there is beautiful landscaping. My only wish is a bigger shop for displaying more of the lovely pottery.  more »

  • Original, beautiful pieces. Not your average pottery shop. I love the storybook figurines and the dogwood designs.
  • I attended a pottery making class with 5 friends. Bobbie was so much fun to work with and super patient with those of us with ZERO experience. I can't wait to see what my piece looks like after it's fired and glazed! Thank you, Scott and Bobbie for your warm hospitality!
