Daniel Seagle was one of the earliest potters in the Catawba Valley. Seagle excelled at throwing thin-walled, stoneware pots. He coated his vessels with an ash glaze comprised of water, clay, and wood ashes. When fired, it created a smooth, glassy surface on the finished works. The ash glaze tradition is particularly associated with Catawba Valley potters.
