Description

blue-green slip glaze, handled, 5 1/2", signed, excellent.About fifty miles from Seagrove, but very close to the Seagrove tradition, is Coles Pottery in Sanford. Potters Neolia Cole Womack and Celia Cole Perkinson are the daughters of Arthur R. Cole, a prominent North Carolina potter who passed away in 1974. Many generations of the Cole family have been and still are traditional Seagrove potters, and Celia and Neolia, though they work a couple of counties away, are very much a part of that lineage. A. R. Coles career began in Randolph County. In 1934 he and his family moved to Sanford, where he established Coles Pottery on Route 1. In the pottery the sisters learned the family business, and by the end of the 1930s Celia and Neolia, though still very young, were turning pieces that were sold in the shop. Coles Pottery is still in operation today, and though it has been in a few different buildings since A. R. Coles day, the continuity of family tradition is strong. Celia and Neolia work with many of the same glazes, and the same Smithfield-dug clay, as their father did
