To see a wider selection of our work, come visit our workplace in the Westmoore Community near Seagrove, North Carolina. Here we maintain a full-time retail shop where we sell the majority of our work. We make thousands of different items, many of which are not pictured on the website. Though we never have everything in stock at any given time, we do unload at least one kiln load of pottery each two weeks during the year.
The shop buildings are also worth a look, as they were very much a labor of love. Much of the work was done by David and Mary themselves, including the timber frame, all woodwork, cedar shingled roof, bathroom tiles, leaded-glass windows, and more. Brickmason Mike Walker of Seagrove laid the bricks and constructed a beautiful seven foot wide cooking fireplace.
Our building encloses both retail shop and work space. Visitors are free to watch us work and ask questions endlessly! Please do understand that some days are spent on work that is interesting to watch (working on the wheel, decorating, etc.), but that pottery also includes many days when we are doing things that are not interesting at all to watch (bookkeeping, mopping and dusting, etc.)
Our hours are from 9 am to 5 pm. We are always closed on Wednesdays and Sundays. In addition, we are not open on Thanksgiving Day and we close every year from December 24-January 17th.
Westmoore Pottery is located in central North Carolina, halfway between the towns of Seagrove and Robbins. Turn off Highway 705 onto Busbee Road; go 1/2 mile, and Westmoore Pottery will be on your left.
For those flying into our area from a distance, our nearest airport is Piedmont Triad International in Greensboro. However, airports in Raleigh-Durham and in Charlotte are only slightly farther away.
If you find yourselves in our area on a Sunday, when Westmoore Pottery is closed, do check out the small selection of pottery we keep at Seagrove Creations, close to downtown Seagrove.
