The North Carolina Pottery Center Presents Monthly Lecture Series, Friday, July 24, 7 – 9 PMPosted on 06/26/15
Seagrove, NC - Sid Luck, a fifth-generation potter, will present on his family’s history, as well as his time spent working for J.B. Cole Pottery, beginning in the late 1950s. "It has been my goal, all my life, to carry on as much of the old traditional work as I can,” says Sid. In 2014, after over 50 years of making pottery, he was awarded the North Carolina Heritage Award, an honor for a lifetime of contribution to the cultural traditions of North Carolina.
Come on out and join us for a fun evening! A potluck at 7:00 pm will begin the evening’s events, followed by Sid’s talk at 8:00 pm. For more information, call the center at (336)873-8430.
