Exhibit Opening: Collecting Carolina: 100 Years of Jugtown Pottery

Saturday, January 21

The potters of Jugtown continue to honor tradition and “the Busbee vision” while reinterpreting their wares with a renewed freshness for today’s consumers and collectors. This new lobby-case exhibit will highlight and showcase the quintessential forms and glazes of the Busbee era (1917–1958), the John Maré era (1958–1968), the Country Roads era (1968–1983), and the Owens family era (1983–present).  An opening reception is planned; for information, visit

Collector and author Steve Compton and Jugtown Pottery assisted with this case exhibit.
