1140 NC-705 SEAGROVE, NC | TUESDAY TO FRIDAY 10AM-4PM AND SATURDAY 10AM-5PM
Celebration of Spring Pottery Tour
April 14th -16th
Spring is here and Seagrove comes alive for our 15th Annual Celebration of Spring Pottery Tour! The Triangle Studio Co-Founders, Kate Waltman and Erin Younge, love spring planting and fresh cut flower season. They have been making planters for flora of all kinds, and Kate specializes in flower vases while Erin makes beautiful wall vases for fresh cut bouquets.
In addition to a focus on everything flowers, these artists also have pieces ranging from dinnerware to jewelry and sculptural work available that weekend. To immerse you in the process, each day of the April 14th-16th event they will have demonstrations by their member artists.
Holly Hill Farm Bakery is a new business in Seagrove and they are opening their doors in a few months. They will be our guests for the event selling delicious pastries and sweet treats during our event.
Friday, April 14th 10am-5pm
Erin Younge will have a wonderfully colorful variety of wall vases perfect for indoor and outdoor decor. She will show how they are made on the potters’ wheel all day and if you come at the right time you may get to take the wheel for a spin yourself.
Saturday, April 15th 10am-5pm
Kate Waltman makes precisely carved art-deco flower vases and will have those available in several sizes this weekend. Special for this event, Kate will be demonstrating how to make a large pot on the potters’ wheel.
Sunday, April 16th 10am-4pm
Our studio artist members Allison Daniel and Sydney Williams will share a day of demonstrations on Sunday, April 15th. Allison will show us how she decorates tableware pieces with her checkerboard flower patterning.

The Triangle Studio wish you all a year of good health!
The Triangle Studio’s gallery features pottery by the founders, Kate Waltman and Erin Younge, as well as new studio members Allison Daniel and Sydney Williams. All of our members have shared studio space and fired wood kilns together making us a creative collective forged by fire. Our artists make a wide variety of work including dinnerware, storage vessels, decorative vases, sculptures, big pots, and 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 three 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!
