Chad was introduced to pottery around the age of 5 when he made his first pot. He began working as a production potter in his early 20s making several hundred pots a week. During this time, he refined his technique on the wheel and gained skill and speed. His dedication to the traditional North Carolina style is evident in his pieces as the wood firing technique is a preferred method resulting in a unique finish that has a rustic look. The finish on many of his pots is accomplished using ash glazes. Being a potter is a combination of science, art, and physical endurance. His pieces are as beautiful as they are functional from vases which make flowers stand out to pitchers and tea pots. His mugs are perfectly matched for the hand and all of his pieces stand out when displayed. These salt and ash glazed pottery are made with the desire to keep tradition in the family. Chad is currently selling his pots at shows, in galleries and exhibits. Explore the links in the left hand column to learn more about where to find Chad's work and pottery in Seagrove, North Carolina.
