The Story Behind Our Pottery

Our Founder, Bob Culbertson, not only left a professional legacy of excellence in the practice of life insurance, but also developed a passion for the arts as a collector as well as an artisan in the world of pottery.

His life, legacy and artistry live through his pottery as well as the influence that continues to shape Morehead Group.
