The Jones Pottery is owned and operated by Matt and Christine Jones in the beautiful Big Sandy Mush valley of Leicester, North Carolina (just west of Asheville in Buncombe county).
Our objective is to make a full range of pots for the garden and home, and offer them for sale at twice yearly 'Kiln Openings' and regional pottery shows. Our home gallery is also open to the general public throughout the year by appointment.
The apprentices help Matt with all aspects of making and firing the work. We throw and decorate every piece of pottery by hand and fire them in a large wood-burning kiln.
Christine keeps up with the books, tends beautiful flower beds, and conducts the Kiln Sales. Without her help, The Jones Pottery never would have made it this far.
Matt enjoys making pots, and he take the task seriously, but he tries to not take himself too seriously.
