To all North Carolina Potters:
I just want to let you know that the vast majority of Seagrove Potters have nothing to do with the festival in Greensboro in the spring. Don Hudson, a Sanford promoter and Phil Morgan, a Seagrove pottery owner, are putting it on. In my opinion neither one is a friend of Seagrove. Both of these people have done more to hurt our community than anyone can imagine. Very few potters in our community want to be associated in any way with these two. Their Festival has very little to do with our community except the Seagrove name. This show can’t do anything but hurt our community even more. To participate would do a disservice to the legacy and heritage of the pottery industry of North Carolina. Supporting this festival is supporting more deception to the public and they do not like it. Please tell other potters and get the word out.
For those Seagrove potters that are doing the show I wish you all the best. But know this, by supporting this festival you are taking our Seagrove brand out of town and are harming our future business. There has been a lot of negativity put out in the past year and a half by those guys. There is already advertising, “ Visit the Seagrove heritage in Sanford”, promoting that area. We need to be positive in trying to overcome this if we want to keep business coming to Seagrove and maintain our Seagrove brand for the future of our community.
