Lees-McRae College is offering exclusive handmade terra cotta pots that feature the Lees-McRae crest for sale to alumni, friends and parents of the College.
Commissioned and designed by Lees-McRae College Trustee Deborah Williams in honor of the inauguration of President Barry M. Buxton, the stamp was hand-tooled by potter Jim Keeling and every pot is made by hand in Warwickshire, England.
Whichford Pottery, a family-run pottery established in 1976, was founded by Jim and Dominique Keeling. Because they blend their own clay, all pots by Whichford Pottery come with a 10 year frostproof guarantee.
The senior throwers at Whichford Pottery have 150 years combined experience making one-of-a-kind pots for your gardens.
To order your exclusive Lees-McRae College terra cotta pot, contact Cindy Priest, Assistant to the President, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (828) 898-8785. The cost is $100 per pot, plus shipping and handling.
The pots will be available for purchase this summer at the Alumni Arts and Crafts Show and at the Lees-McRae College Welcome Center at the Historic Cheese House.
Thanks to the generosity of Deborah Williams, all proceeds of sales of these exclusive handmade pots will benefit Lees-McRae College.
