About

Who was that masked man and how on earth did he get so dirty?

By now you may have realized Bubba Jones is something of a potter's alter ego (maybe an altered ego). Bubba's got some serious 'slpaining to do if you folks are going to understand how a business that is all about quality, authenticity and the joy of using handmade items starts off with a fake name, an incognito potter. It's not unprecedented. Just think of the Lone Ranger or Spiderman or, better yet, Stephen Colbert. A public persona that allows a potter to do what needs to be done.
Throughout history potters have made pots that serviced some niche in their community. They responded to the needs of people with bigger jars, if that's what was needed, or thinner almost disposable cups, but they did it with style and the touch of a human hand that brought vitality to the entire enterprise. When a lot of potters and a lot of people got together the collaboration would actually make a record of that culture and time. Nowadays, a plain white, factory made cup with a computer generated slogan fired on as a decal can pass as handmade, maybe that records some of our times and culture as well. Add to that the fact that most potters, in the US anyway, are trained in university art departments; very good at somethings, not so good at others. Pushing the boundaries of individual expression is prized above all else, which leads to some beautiful and compelling work that is largely self absorbed and disconnected from its community. It is what it is.
Suddenly, a bunch of folks swimming upstream through the 21 century start making their own beer and opening small craft breweries (on every street corner in some towns). They start making a lot of stuff (just look around Etsy) and they are growing food and raising chickens and trying to re-connect with what's real (at least part time anyway, I mean, who doesn't occasionally need to make a trip to the Quickie Mart). That's when it come to me, it come like a flash, like a vision burnt across the clouds: These people need real cups and growlers!!! You can hardly blame a guy for racing out to the shop, grabbing a hunk of clay and joining the crusade. I hope that satisfies some curiosity for now. It's really not very hard to figure out who's behind the curtain if you try, so if you do, keep it off the net, off the grid, on the down low you know. Viva La Revolucion!

    Bubba was born on the wheel. Born from an innate need to make pots that were part of a group, pots that helped define a culture, pots with a job, the way it used to be for all potters.

Frequently asked questions
What if my item arrives broken?

Sometimes pottery breaks in shipment, no matter how well it is packed. All broken items will replaced at no cost to the customer if all of these steps are taken:

1. Notify me within 5 days from the date of delivery.
2. Send photos of the outer box, the packing and the broken item with the notification.
3. Hold on to the items and packaging in case the shipper wants to inspect them.

I will send images of possible replacement pieces, but because the custom nature of product some replacements may have to be made from scratch and require up to 8 weeks for delivery. Understand that no one is more sorry than me and anything that comes up will be handled as quickly as possible.
