Sandy Cole is the wife of fellow potter Kevin Brown and co-owner of North Cole Potter. Cole's family has been making pottery in North Carolina for over 200 years. Cole enjoys making face jugs, miniatures, and other unique pieces. She leaves the utilitarian pieces to her husband. The family connection is strong for Cole. She feels like she holding the hands of her departed relatives when she feels the grooves in the pottery they made.

Kevin Brown is the husband of potter Sandy Cole. Together they own the North Cole Pottery in Sanford North Carolina. Brown and Coles shop creates pottery that is not only beautiful but also functional. Brown creates his pieces so that they are oven, dishwasher, and microwave safe. ‚Äč
