Brother Jay and Phil Graves

I am going to send you right over to read an article posted on my brother's blog.
Brother Jay is the oldest of my 4 siblings and has done some of the best articles on NC Pottery.
Get a cup of coffee or a spot of tea and go over and take a read.

Outstanding article! Both informative and entertaining. It is always insightful to look back on the traditions of the craft to see where exactly all this stuff came from. Oh to have been alive back then and to have watched those masters at work.

I love hearing these old stories. Wish more folks in this world today still had that old time work ethic! Thanks for the link to the article!

WOW! What a good read -thanks for the link. What a rich history and appears your brother had done an incredible amount of research. The colors of those glazes were beautiful. Hopefully the article will be widely published(?) The story stole this fly fisherwoman's heart immediately...

Whew! My Saturday afternoon rest/read!
Very nice. Hey, are you guys related to Lenton Slack? Did I ask you this before? He was my professor in Asheboro at RTC.

It was or I should say is a great read- yes Tracey we are related to Lenton- here we go again with our things we have in common.
Glad you all enjoyed his blog.
Go back for more!

What a storyteller. I didn't know I would be interested in reading about fly fishing or turtle catching, but I wanted a few more pages of stories. The pottery section was equally well-written, researched and illustrated. Interesting information about the Seagrove clays.

Jay definitely has a way of telling the the best stories with so much history wound into them.
