Linda and Jim Dalton are a husband and wife team of ceramic artists who create one of a kind high end functional and decorative pottery, both wheel thrown and hand built, at our studio just 15 minutes north of Pinehurst, NC. Our studio has become a popular destination venue for out of town visitors as well as regulars, patrons and collectors. Linda has been fascinated with pottery since a visit to Seagrove 35 years ago. She had never before seen pottery made, and came home committed to the idea of learning to do it. Working and raising a family competed for her attention, so it was not until our twins left for college that she was able to begin taking classes. Starting with a wheel set up in the corner of my garage workshop, the studio expanded over time to take over the entire garage. In 2003, we decided to move to Moore County and purchased a wooded tract where we could build a studio and home. With our priorities in place, we build a studio first and lived in a rental while we build our dream home. Located on 11 acres of rolling hardwood timberland, our place is populated with game, wildflowers, ferns, and birds. All of this just 15 minutes from Pinehurst, one of NC's top tourist attractions. Custom work and commissions are an area in which we excel. A patron once asked if we do custom work, our reply was "that's why we call you customers!" We do custom horsehair with the hair of a specific horse, custom wall pieces in the size to fit a specific wall space, and custom trophies and awards for golf tournaments, croquet tournaments, tennis championships, as well as national car shows. We also travel to select art fairs in the US and our work is available in select galleries. See lindadaltonpottery.com for details.
