Seagrove Pre-Conference Artist
"It has been my goal, all my life, to carry on as much of the old traditional work as I can." --- Sid Luck
Luck's Ware continues the ancient art of wheel-thrown pottery near Seagrove, the "Pottery Capitol" of North Carolina. Sid Luck, a fifth generation potter, and sons, Jason and Matt, continue the Luck pottery tradition. This pottery tradition is observed in the shape of many old time functional stoneware pieces such as candle holders, churns, jugs, pitchers, and teapots.
Sid digs local clay to use in some of his pottery. One of the wheels he still uses for turning was originally in his father's shop. A wood-fired groundhog kiln, built in 2003, is used to produce salt-glazed pottery similar to that produced many years ago by Luck ancestors. Bricks from the kilns of Sid's father and grandfather were used in the construction.
