Welcome to Ben Owen Pottery.  First established by Ben Owen Sr. in 1959, we are a multi-generational family business in Seagrove, North Carolina. Ben Owen III is the primary potter along with works by his children, Benjamin Owen IV and Juliana Owen, and assistant Bryan Pulliam.  Ben's forefathers came to NC from England as early as the late 1700s to ply their craft and furnish storage jars and other utilitarian wares to early settlers. Explore the work made onsite by our potters and history of this multi-generational clay family.
