Seagrove Wood Fire Pottery Tour
June 4th-5th, 2022 | 10AM to 5PM
Kate Waltman is part of a tight-knit community of wood fire Potters in the Seagrove, North Carolina area. This group of ceramic artists fire most, if not all, of their work in wood burning kilns. This firing technique is very labor intensive, which means they help each other fire kilns and work together on an ongoing basis.
On Saturday, June 4th Kate will be demonstrating her decorative carving techniques.
This event is a self-guided tour of individual wood fired potteries, galleries, studios, and workshops in Seagrove, NC, also known as the Handmade Pottery Capital of the USA.
Get a Map at any one of the participating shops and find your favorite handmade pottery pieces to take home and enjoy. For more details about the other Potters in the Tour visit www.SeagroveWoodFire.com

Kate Waltman, Erin Younge, Bill Jones, Andrew Dutcher, and Margaret Larson wish you all a Happy New Year and good health!
The Triangle Studio’s gallery features pottery by the founders, Kate Waltman and Erin Younge, as well as guest ceramic artists Bill Jones, Andrew Dutcher, and Margaret Larson. All of our members have shared studio space and fired wood kilns together for several years making us a collaborative group created by fire. Our artists make a wide variety of work including dinnerware, storage vessels, decorative vases, sculptures, big pots, and a new line of jewelry.
The original brick structure was built sometime after the railroad was brought to Seagrove at the turn of the 20th century. During the early years the building was a restaurant less than a mile from town center. In the late 1940’s it was converted into a gas station called the Triangle Service Station where local businesses, and traffic through downtown Seagrove, could have their vehicles serviced or pick up concessions. Some years later it began to service the larger cargo trucks that transported goods for the cannery, now known as Historic Luck’s Cannery, just up the road.
The property’s triangular shape influenced its name when it was built back in the early 1900’s and although it was abandoned for the last 33 years it is being restored to a new glory. As of 2019, the building houses studio spaces and a gallery with pottery and ceramic sculpture by the founding artists and their occasional guests.
Come visit or follow us on social media to see the renovations in progress and the beautiful pottery and sculpture on display!
For visitor’s safety, we will have a sanitizing station, gloves available, and masks for purchase. While in the gallery, we are asking customers to follow the 3 Ws; Wait, Wear and Wash. Wait 6 feet apart, Wear a mask or face covering, and Wash your hands as often as possible. We are doing everything we can to help facilitate a safe and healthy atmosphere while you shop.
