Gene and Beverly King
true union and love of
pottery goes back to our early childhood. Gene's family
was instrumental in the early stages of the NC Pottery Center
Their first Pottery business began with a
partnership with Beverly's own sister,
Melanie Dennison, and
the opening of Village Pottery in 1995. In 1999, the old
Seagrove Fire Station, which was built by Gene's grandfather, A.L.
in the 1950's, became available
for individual purchase. Seagrove Pottery
Gallery opened with a handful of local potters and artists.
Gene has a love for arts in every direction, and the acknowledgement
of the gift
of art in itself. He sees the thought, effort,
time, involved in each and every piece.
