Permanent Collection 2007.02.12
Jeff Dean and Stephanie Nicole Martin moved to Seagrove, N.C. in 1998. Dean earned a BFA in Ceramic Design from Eastern Carolina University. Dean works in stoneware and draws his inspiration from his daily interactions with nature and history. Martin earned a BFA with a concentration in Ceramics from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She works primarily in earthenware. Her inspiration comes from nostalgia, many of her pieces mimic patterns from her grandmother's dresses and quilts.
