The Dodson family enjoys forming original handcrafted items from natural material. Each pottery piece is fired to earthenware or stoneware temperatures & decorated with lead free glazes. Each family member has their own distinct style. Some pieces are traditional & others are more contemporary. Functional and decorative pieces are made.
Our pottery is high-fired in two large natural gas kilns. All our glazes are lead-free and food safe. Our pottery is safe for use in the dishwasher, oven, or microwave. Our potters work in an open studio, so you'll often see potters at work when you visit. Adults and kids are all welcome to watch the pottery being made. When a potter is in the studio, kids are welcome to request a small piece of clay to sculpt and take home.
