Terry and Anna King are lifelong residents of Seagrove, the pottery capital of the United States.
In 1987, Terry, Anna, and their daughter, Crystal, opened their first pottery on the site of the old Joe Owen Pottery, on Hwy. 705, south of Seagrove. Soon after, Anna was taken under the wing of master potter Charlie Owen, brother of Joe and Ben Owen. They have since built a studio closer to home and another studio, called "Southern Visions", on Hwy. 705, "The Potter's Highway".
Although the Kings use their creativity to produce functional, every day, pottery, their true talents emerge when they direct their hands, minds, and hearts toward sculptural, folk pottery. These pieces include handbuilt lions, rams, chickens, and Noah's arks, as well as wheel thrown and altered jugs, face jugs, and grape cluster pitchers. It is while creating these highly collectible, one of a kind pieces, that Terry, Anna, and Crystal are happiest; and their abilities and contentment is evident in each and every piece!
