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.
