Louisburg Gardeners Visit Jugtown Potters On Thursday, November 6, The Louisburg Garden Club motored to Jugtown to visit and observe the demon strations by the potters in this section. Club members learned that a number of potters from Staffordshire, Kngland settled in or near Moore County, around 1750, because of the availability of good surface clays. The potters made all kinds of jugs and jars to preserve and serve food, candlesticks for light and even jugs for grave head stones that can' still be seen. The making of pottery in )? ?? > , hit* on . \/fti creased wilh the growth of the whiskey business but when prohibition became law in 1908 most of the potteries went out of business. The story of Jugtown Pot tery began in 1915 whtn two talented people from Raleigh, N. C., Jacques and Juliana Busbee became interested in the handcrafts of North Caro lina which were on the wane early in this century. When Mrs. Busbee was a judge at a county fair in Lexington she saw a "brilliant orange glaze pie plate." The Busbees' enthusiasm for the pie plate led them to Moore Cotlnty In search for potters. Thfcy' fbuM only Ave or nix continuing to make the crocks and jars needed by the neighborhood. The Busbees set themselves a challenge to revive the dying industry. They collected the ware and opened a tea room in New York to sell the pottery. It was a great success but there was not enough ware to sup ply the shop. In 1921 they decided to build and operate a pottery themselves naming it "Jugtown." They estab lished rigorous standards for the ware and an exceptional pottery was created here and through the yean has re mained in great demand. Jugtown continue* today as a demonstration of the early life-style of American potteries. The buildings are long cabins, the pug mill is drawn by horse, and the ware is turned by hand and fired in ward and oil burning kilms. Other potteries visited by the club members were the Ben Owens' Pottery. Coles' Pottery and Seagrove Pottery. At Seagrove, a tour of the Potters Museum was con ducted by Mr. Tom Preaneil, historian for the museum. The story of Jugtown and surrounding potters area should be of interest to all North Carolinians as it is part of their cultural and historical heritage.
