A Holiday Pottery Giveaway #NCMADE

N.C. Pottery, Wiener Dog Pottery Giveaway

I enjoyed learning more about this North Carolina native's talent over the Thanksgiving holiday. She is Will's first cousin so I was fortunate enough to spend the holiday with her. I have been so impressed with her pieces.She specializes in functional pottery, and we use her bowls for soup and chili in my own home. 

I convinced her to let me giveaway one of her pottery mold pieces that she does for the holidays. I thought it was charming, and would be a great entertaining piece for the Christmas season. I knew you would love it, too.

Margaret has always had a love for traditional functional pottery. She was able to obtain hands-on instruction while pursuing her degree at Meredith College. While at Meredith, she learned the art of throwing and hand building while studying under John Givens.  

Upon graduation from Meredith College, Margaret put pottery on the shelf to work on her career. She still works full-time in her day job.  After many years, she met the owner of Double Diamond Pottery, Melanie Waters, at the Farmville Dogwood Festival. She signed up for classes and fell in love all over again with the art of pottery and has started to devote a lot of time to it. 

Last year, Margaret was able to study at Finch Pottery in Bailey, NC to learn and practice some new techniques. That helped put her on the path to branch out on her on with her own pieces. 

Margaret, who is a dachshund owner and lover, followed her passion and opened Wiener Dog Pottery. 

Wiener Dog Pottery is currently located in historic downtown Farmville, NC at 3700-B East Wilson Street. Her studio is open by chance or appointment only, but you will find Margaret there most evenings and weekends.
