We had a request to repeat this workshop in February, so here it is! Once more this will be a small group workshop, held at our studio in Seagrove, NC. For more information, and to register online, click here: JEFF BROWN POTTERY

Whether you have been throwing pots for a number of years or just learning, this workshop will be sure to enhance your skills. It also provides me with a good arm workout, since there will LOTS of clay for me to pug when it's all over!

Here is the short version of Jeff's clay journey...

Jeff Brown learned to make pots in high school and started his professional career as a potter in 1981, making piggy banks in a Wilmington, NC pottery. After spending the next 7 years working for various studio and production potteries along the North Carolina coast and in Seagrove, he decided to take a job at a New Hampshire based, salt glazed, pottery factory. While in New Hampshire Jeff opened his own studio and also began teaching pottery classes at the NH Institute of Art. 
As many of you know... in 2010 Jeff and I left NH and have settled into our studio in Seagrove, NC.

  1. I'm liking the zig zag pattern on those pots. Some day I'll find a wheel to use, hopefully a Shimpo whisper one. Ha, dreams
