The potteries of Sanford have always been included among the "Seagrove Area Potteries" because of the immense prestige of the Cole Family potters, and our nearness to Seagrove. North Carolina is a state famous nationally for its pottery, and the Cole family is one of the most famous of the pottery dynasties in the history of North Carolina clay.

The legendary A.R. Cole, whose work helped redefine "traditional" pottery, established this shop in 1934. Today, his daughters, Neolia and Celia, continue his work.

The pottery they make is highly collectible. Neolia's grandson, Kenneth George, shows great potential for building on traditions of excellence.
