In 1916, Jacques Busbee and his wife providing a market by selling North Carolina Pottery in their New York City tearoom. In 1922, Jacques opened Jugtown Pottery in Moore County to train and encourage younger local potters. As well as producing traditional wares of the region, such as whisky jugs, storage jars, and pie dishes, he began introducing more decorative vases based on Chinese and Korean forms he found in museums and library books. The tremendous success of Jugtown Pottery led to the revival of production among other potters in the Moore County area. Jacques Busbee died in 1947, and the Jacques Busbee Memorial Collection later became part of the North Carolina Museum of Art.
