About

Family-owned handmade pottery for over 35 years.

My wife and I met in college in a ceramics class and have been making pottery together ever since. After college we sold our pottery at craft shows. We opened the Jay Craft Center in 1980 to sell our work as well as the work of other local artists. After our first child we kept doing craft shows but after we had our second it became too much so we stopped in the early 1990s. Now we only sell our pottery in our store located in the Adirondack mountains of New York. We have grown over the years and now fire in three different kilns at three different temperatures, including gas and electric, and we are lucky enough to have friends with a wood fired salt kiln that we fire in about once a year. Our son joined the team in 2012 and like his mother he paints his own line of farm animals onto all sorts of pottery.

    My wife and I met in a ceramics class in college. After college we started selling our pottery at craft shows. In 1980 we opened our store. Many things have changed over the years, but my love for pottery isn't one of them.

    My husband and I have complementing styles. He likes to make larger pieces and I make smaller ones. I also paint designs on both his and my pieces, including pine-cones, irises, black eyed susans, trout, and bears.

    Growing up around pottery gave me an appreciation for it at a young age. I want to give that to other kids. That is why I started a line of farm animal pottery for kids. I have found that my work appeals to adults just as much as kids.
