Mud Dabber's Pottery of Brevard

3623 Greenville Highway, Brevard, NC 28712

The Dodsons took the name “Mud Dabbers” as a play on the mud dauber insect. Early in the history of the family enterprise, John O. would throw pots in an old shed on the family’s Fortson, GA home place. He soon found that the long, cylindrical mud dauber nests being constructed on the walls of the shed varied in color. They were being made from the different clays he used in his pottery! John E., the family artist, designed the wasp-like mud dabber, which is a featured mark on all pottery produced by members of the Dodson family.
