Burlon B. Craig (American, 1914 - 2002)

Burlon Craig began learning his craft when he was fourteen from fellow Catawba Valley potter Jim Lynn. When Burlon returned to North Carolina after fighting in World War II, he purchased Harvey Reinhardt’s groundhog kiln and pottery shop. He made a full range of items, both utilitarian and decorative. Burlon was especially known for his face jugs, which he began producing in the 1970s in response to demand from his customers.
