Our story

We started Joppa Mountain Pottery in 1995 as a family affair. McDonald, an accomplished student of fine art, has been creating pottery for more than 30 years. Ann has a 20-year background in ceramics and her son, Shane, is becoming an accomplished potter as well, specializing in hand-built pieces and the Raku process.

Joppa Mountain Pottery has a growing reputation with collectors and galleries all over the world. Our award-winning work has been featured several times on Home and Garden Television (HGTV), on PBS and in Country Marketplace Magazine to name just a few.

We are known for our Stoneware and Raku Pottery. Each piece is either wheel-thrown or hand-sculpted and then decorated, carved, painted, glazed and kiln fired using our own hands. All glazes are hand-mixed and are unique to Joppa Mountain Pottery. Our glazes are recipes we have created and refined and are made from different combinations of 'dirt' from all over the world. We use Chung reds, cobalt blues, earth-toned browns for stoneware glazes and nickel, copper and iron metals in our Raku glazes to name just a few of the ingredients. The beauty of our handmade pottery is that no two pieces are exactly the same, giving it the uniqueness, originality and overall superior quality our customers expect.

    I'm very tall with an auburn beard! My long-fingered hands curve the damp clay spinning on a potters wheel into dishes, cups, bowls, vases, and pitchers - which I most like making.

  • Deborah Ann Crosby

    Owner, Artist

    I sculpt whimsical figures, including my popular sitting reindeer, and paint decorative designs on pieces. I mix the pottery's glazes, using up to 14 ingredients to get the right hue.
