30NC0334014e010 - Seagrove Bulldog Pottery Holiday Show and Sale - On Saturday from 9:30-5:30 Bruce and Samantha will have a freshly fired group of Moka glaze pottery with a few twists for the holiday season. Visit them at their Bulldog Pottery studio, 5 miles south of the town of Seagrove, NC on Business 220 for lively conversation about their recent work and refreshments. To find out about their most recent happenings in their studio follow their blog at "Around and About with Bulldog Pottery" www.bulldogpottery.blogspot.com

Bruce Gholson and Samantha Henneke's studio is a collaborative environment that provides them with support to express themselves as individuals; more than, they could achieve singularly. They brainstorm for ideas by formulating and testing clays, glazes, surface treatments, and playing off of each other's intuition about the materials and processes. Bruce Gholson has been fascinated with fossils, reptiles and insects since childhood. Recent interests have included fossilization in amber, Chinese scholar stones, and arrowheads from the region. Samantha Henneke is inspired by the interplay between plant, insect and animal life forms, colors, textures, and shapes of vegetables and fruits.
