I carry many pieces of North Carolina pottery in my shop that I do not list on my website. I do not like to ship larger pieces due to postage costs, and potential damage to one of a kind pieces. If you are in my area, be sure and stop by.  There are over 300 pieces of North Carolina pottery in my shop.
