It is with mixed emotions that we are announcing our retirement. After over forty years of Eileen doing pottery and my 14 years working with her, we came to the decision that it's time to turn off the wheels and kilns.

We do plan to train an excellent potter to maintain our pottery line, so those who have our pottery can continue to add replacements or new pieces. In the meantime, we will no longer be accepting shopping cart orders, so if you want to order a piece, please call us at 828 252 9122 to see if we have it in stock. We will be producing some pottery during the next month.

We want to thank you for your loyalty over the last 14 years and we will update this page (and others) to keep you up to date on what is happening.

Eileen and Marty Black.

Our Tradition Will Carry On!

We have transferred all of our equipment and our coveted glaze recipes to

The Village Potters

They are located in Riverview Station in Asheville's River Arts district on Lyman St. (about 0.5 miles south of our former studio in the Cotton Mill)

Over the next few months, we will be training
Lori Theriault of The Village Potters
to produce much of our pottery in our unique glazes.

Thank you again for all the support you have given us over the last thirty years.
