North Carolina Pottery from the Collection of Dr. Nancy Farmer and Dr. A. Everette James
April 30, 2013 - August 4, 2013
Recently, Dr. Nancy Farmer and Dr. A. Everette James, husband and wife and collectors of all things Southern—quilts, paintings, furniture, and pottery—donated a collection of North Carolina pottery to the Morris. These pieces were the first significant examples of one of the South’s richest decorative arts traditions to become part of the Morris’s holdings. The collection represented Seagrove, a very small town (population 250) in Randolph County, North Carolina. Its influence is disproportionate to its size. Notable for its many potteries, it is sometimes referred to as the “pottery capital of the world.”
