About

Our studio is a collaborative environment that provides us with support to express ourselves as individuals; more than, we could achieve singularly.

We are studio potters living and working in central North Carolina in a small town called Seagrove. Ideas for the development of our pieces evolve from working with ceramic material and observing the interplay between glaze, clay and fire. Together we develop and share a “treasure trove” of clay and glaze vocabulary.
Charlotte Brown writes, “Their aesthetic is contemporary, American, and personal. They are captivated by their adopted home place. They find inspiration for their work in the landscape, in arrowheads they find by the hundreds, in the insects that swarm in summer months, and in the imagined fossils of this verdant land.” (Brown, Charlotte Vestal, The Remarkable Potters of Seagrove, The Folk Pottery of a Legendary North Carolina Community, Lark Books, Sterling Pub. Co., New York, 2006, pg 116)

    I own and operate Bulldog Pottery along with my wife Samantha Henneke. I create functional and decorative ceramics throwing with a variety of clays and developing unique glaze formulas. I am fascinated with fossils, fish, reptiles, and insects.

    I own and operate Bulldog Pottery along with my husband Bruce Gholson. My studio art pottery aesthetics are traditional with a flare - a dotted mug, an insect on a plate, or swirl on a covered jar.
