Inside the artist’s studio at Old Edgefield Pottery, visitors can view works in progress as well as a collection of priceless ceramic antiquities.

Shelves line one entire wall of Old Edgefield Pottery. Here, resident potter Stephen Ferrell displays a portion of the collection he accumulated with his father, Terry. These highly sought-after pitchers, pots, and jugs were made by slave potters in the Edgefield area of South Carolina, using materials and techniques unique to the area.

My mother recently passed away, leaving an old Edgefield pottery bowl which has been passed through generations. I was told that Terry Ferrell was the expert on these items by Bill Hendrix of Newberry, SC. Can someone email me as to how I can follow up on the bowl’s value?

Merry Christmas, Steve (if you are the son of Orpha and Terry Ferrell). You may not remember me at your parents’ Church of God of Abrahamic Faith in Los Angeles many years ago. I was at a young age when I started to go to church, and baptized by your father at 12. The church helped me in so many ways and helped to shape my life through the years. I always think of your parents and the church, especially this season. Best wishes to you and your family. Wow, your pottery studio is beautiful, even if you are not the Steve I hoped you to be. When the Los Angeles church closed, the McKeowns would pick me up to go to another church family. Sincerely, Nancy (My first husband – Kazel – passed away at 37 with 3 children. I remarried in 1997.)

Do you know of any potters who sign their name simply “INA”?

I love how these pots look Steve! How much does one of your pots sell for? I am just wondering.

Hi Chere! I just wanted to let you know that SCIWAY is a private website about South Carolina, and that we don’t have any affiliation with Steve Ferrell or Old Edgefield Pottery. SCIWAY was fortunate to be able to visit with Steven Ferrell a couple of years ago, and we took these pictures and wrote this article about our visit. The best way to find out the answer to your question would be to call them at (803) 637-0387. Hope this helps! – SCIWAY

I have several unsigned dave pottery jugs. I have had them authenticated by several experts but they are unsure of the price, I keep getting different answers. I saw in your picture two of the jugs I have. How can I found out the value?

Hi Chris. We are not sure here at SCIWAY about the signature. Dave is definitely the expert! The most recent contact information we have for Old Edgefield Pottery is 230 Simpkins St – Edgefield, SC 29824 –

I’m wondering if there are any known works of Dave the Slave in which he signed the Lewis Miles “LM” initials in large cursive letters…on the “bottom” of a pot? Thanks.
