Charlie moved back to Greensboro, NC in 1999 to teach ceramics at his alma mater Guilford College. What he thought would be a semester long appointment has turned into 2 decades. This half time teaching position left Charlie with three days a week in his personal studio. Over the last 20 years Charlie has grown his business and family. Along with his wife Danielle, he has 3 wonderful kids. In 2013 the Teffts moved just outside Greensboro to the town of Summerfield, NC. This relocation allowed Charlie to set up a studio and gallery in the back yard.
