Welcome to our studio! The online version, that is. Being a production facility, we don’t have tours of the studio, but we have created this photo gallery to show how our pottery is made.
After a full day of cooling, the kiln can be opened and the magic of the process is revealed; each piece is now fully vitrified and rings like a bell, and the colors of the glaze have blossomed and blended to their rich appearance. Customers on that day often buy Peter Pots still warm from the kiln.
The entire process is no different than it was at the outset seventy years ago. Being fully handcrafted and made from natural materials, there is a slight variation in color and shape from piece to piece, which is part of the essence of a true handcraft. We intend to keep it that way; Peter Pots Pottery has a unique character that would be lost if we were to yield to an urge to modernize.
