Linda Dalton Pottery is the creation of Linda and Jim Dalton, a husband and wife team of studio potters who craft one of a kind high end functional and decorative pottery, both wheel thrown and hand built, at their studio just minutes north of Pinehurst, NC. A working studio, open by appointment, their studio has become a popular destination venue for out of town visitors as well as regulars, patrons and pottery collectors. Here visitors can follow the progress of work from raw clay to finished work, and chat with the creators about the processes, as well as trying their hand at making a piece of art.
Custom work and commissions are an area in which the Daltons excel. When a patron once asked if they do custom work, their reply was “that’s why we call you customers!” The Daltons do custom horsehair pieces with the hair from a specific horse, as well as custom trophies and awards for golf, croquet and tennis tournaments, as well as national car shows.
Our work is also available in select galleries. See where you may purchase our work for a list.

Our 9th Annual Fall Studio Sale will be held on November 2nd-3rd and 9th-10th from 9 AM to 5 PM. We have been working on lots of new colors and shapes which we are excited for you to see.
Our Silent Auction piece this Fall is this lidded horsehair jar with rare black bamboo on the lid. It is 14″ tall and 15″ wide. Wheel thrown, it is then coated with a fine slip called terra sigillata, and burnished to a high shine. After bisque firing, it is placed into a raku kiln and fired to 1300-1500 F. Pieces of horsehair are then draped on the hot piece, infusing the distinctive black lines. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to benefit:
