This mug is perfect! It is so much more beautiful than I imagined from the picture! It was also well packaged and quickly shipped - I will be looking for more treasures from this shop! Thank you!

Beautifully, lovingly, hand crafted, and sent to me with the greatest of speed and care through our east coast snowstorm. I’m so happy with this mug I bought from the Jay Craft Center, it matched the description and picture, and exceeds all expectations! My sincere gratitude to Cheri, Lee, & Kaiden. I got it yesterday, now I’m having my morning coffee! Thanks again! I love it!

Beautiful ceramic mug. I love the thumb rest and the comfortable handle. A great purchase from a small business for yourself or as a gift.

My husband is “very” pleased with his mug! I only wish we could have purchased it in person like the first one!

Family-owned handmade pottery for over 40 years.
My business partner Lee and I met in a college ceramics class in the 1970’s and have been making pottery together ever since. After college we sold our pottery at craft shows until we opened the Jay Craft Center in 1980 to sell our work as well as the work of other local artists. The store and studio are housed in an old grange hall in the small Adirondack town of Jay, New York.
Our son Kaiden joined the team in 2012 and enjoys creating Adirondack and animal themed designs. Since 2014 Lee has been making pottery in North Carolina and has built his own studio there, where he can make his pottery in a warmer climate and bring it back up to the store in New York. All of our pottery is handmade from start to finish. Each piece is one of a kind and made to last a lifetime.
If you are ever in the Adirondack area, please visit our gallery and studio located at 12953 Route 9N in Jay, New York. Items sold in our Etsy shop are only a small sampling of all of the pieces we have to offer in our store, including works by other local artists.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Potter, Artist, Painter
I make all my pots with the goal that they will be used every day and become treasured family heirlooms. I like to bring my pottery to life by painting designs on my pieces, including pinecones, irises, black eyed susans, trout, birds and more.
Owner, Potter, Artist
After making pottery in the Adirondacks since the 70's I moved to NC in 2014 and built a new studio in an old railroad Stationmaster’s house. My recent work focuses on bold colors, carved designs and combining different clays in a marbleized pattern.
Assistant, Maker, Designer
As the son of 2 potters I spent a long time trying not to follow their footsteps, but now have come to realize how much I love pottery. I started with a line of farm animal themed pieces and have since branched out into Adirondack inspired designs.
