This year's turkey will be a ''Turkey Jerky'' that can be eaten after browsing a selection of our latest pots. R.D. was my father, the late Ronald Dewitt Mahan. This is our kiln opening in honor of the man whose courage, determination, and energy inspired me to create whatever I desire. It's an annual event at the studio to celebrate pottery and family, together with friends from more than thirty years of making pottery in Seagrove. I will have new work available fresh from the kilns. There will be wood-fired pots and electric-fired pots: tree pots, platters, soul pots, bells, and more. Shop in person and online. Refreshments provided.
