Jugtown Pottery


Author(s):
Abstract:
A selection of Jugtown pottery from the Museum’s permanent collection will be on display in the North Carolina Gallery this summer. Jugtown Pottery was established in the 1920s by Jacques and Juliana Royster Busbee in an attempt to revive the dying folk craft. Under the Busbees’ direction, potters of Moore County refined the traditional shapes and glazes of the pottery. As a result, the art form flourished and a major market was created for the pottery in New York.
