Annual Holiday Open House

November 18 & 19, 2017


It's that time again! Join us for the 26th annual Holiday Open House.

See the Contact page for directions to the pottery shop.



Check out the new Old Farmhouse Pottery tee shirt!

They will be for sale at the Open House.

Each shirt is hand-printed and hand-colored, and like a real mug, each mug is hand-decorated, making each shirt a one-of-a-kind.




R.I. P. Steve Maas


I got the sad news recently that my friend Steve Maas suffered a heart attack and died. For many years Steve came to the pottery shop and helped fire the wood-fired kiln, giving much needed breaks in the arduous process. We had many extended conversations during those many hours of work, and he was a great friend!

Steve moved back to his native California in 2011, to take care of his ailing and aging mother. She passed away the next year and Steve ended up living close to his brother so they could look after each other.

Iím thankful that Steve came for one final visit earlier this year. He was still making pots in California, and in the photo is some of new work he brought.
