About Us Hero

 

At Farmhouse Pottery, we are old-world potters with simple tools and strong beliefs in process and authenticity. We believe the farmers, craftsmen, and makers are the core of our communities, and that farm-to-table isn't a foodie trend, but rather the rediscovery of a more sustainable lifestyle and value system. Through our craft and in our daily lives, we're reconnecting others to this lifestyle and defining its place in the modern day.

We are America's studio pottery and this is our American dream.

Here at Farmhouse Pottery, we seek to craft a community that celebrates the art of the human experience and the beauty of the handmade. To create a better world that escapes the draw of fast consumerism and delights in the pursuit of love, creativity, and fewer, better things.

We value the timeless elegance and everlasting durability of our artisan-crafted goods. Thoughtfully made and effortlessly beautiful, our designs are created to be as remarkable as the earth and as enduring as the human spirit.

Material

The seconds that fall under the category of material occur as a result of natural material melting and bleeding through the glaze during the firing process. Depending on the size, intensity and location of one of these discrepancies, will depend on whether a piece is considered first or second quality. The larger a pot becomes, the more area there is for variation to occur on the surface.

Glaze

After a pot is finished in the studio and bisque fired, it is glazed, stacked into the kiln, and unloaded by our kiln team of master potters. Each of our pots is glazed by hand! The seconds that fall under the glazing category are created during this part of our process. When loading glazed pieces into a kiln, glaze can sometimes chip off, exposing a small area of raw clay.

Even though a piece may be missing a patch of glaze, each pot is still fully functional because we fire our claybody to its proper temperature. When a claybody is fully fired it becomes vitrified, keeping all of our pieces completely food safe!
