Announcement    Welcome to our Etsy Shop.
RESTOCK coming Early 2023, with new pieces which will include Dough Bowls and Batter Bowls as well as many other pieces. Check back with us or follow us on Instagram for shop restock alerts.

We hand make, mostly on a potters wheel, each piece of our pottery in our mountain top studio in Central Arkansas. We have been studio mates working together since the late 1970's. All pieces are priced with shipping included.

ABOUT OUR PROCESS, PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY
In SOME cases we have multiples of certain pieces and do not photograph each one in a particular glaze therefore the piece you order may not have the exact features of the posted item, but it will be very close. Glaze variations are to be expected. We photograph in a controlled studio light box which generally produces a fairly accurate, though not perfect color representation.

We fire 90% of our work in a gas fired reduction kiln which produces a rich surface and some interesting glaze effects. Handmade pottery is perfectly imperfect, meaning our handmade pieces will have evidence of the human hand. As a buyer you can expect well-crafted pottery created to function for its' intended purpose but without the uniformities found in machine made, mass produced ware. The best part about collecting and using pottery in your daily rituals is not matching your pieces but finding something interesting about each individual piece.

Our pottery is intended for daily use, therefore it is lead free and safe to use in the dishwasher and microwave oven. Oven use is not recommended.

ABOUT SHIPPING, PLEASE REVIEW CAREFULLY
We ship only within the contiguous United States. Please be sure to enter an accurate shipping address, double check numbers and street names. In most cases we ship USPS so we need an address where you receive mail. Some larger pieces or orders with many individual pieces ship Fed Ex so an appropriate delivery address is necessary. Alaska customers are welcome to place an order, but please understand because we offer free shipping it may not be feasible for us to absorb all shipping costs for larger pieces such as mixing bowls, canister sets and other pieces in that range. You may contact us to check what an additional cost to you would be.
We do not accept returns as packing handmade pottery to ship back to us tricky and may result in broken pottery, if you decide to cancel your order before we ship, please contact us immediately.

Most orders are shipped from our shop within 1-5 days Priority Mail or USPS Ground and are insured. Larger pieces are occasionally shipped Fed Ex.

About OldDogPottery

Sales 2,575
On Etsy since 2008

Lucky Enough

We began making pottery in the mid-seventies while in college. In April of 1980 we settled in the small river town of Hardy, Arkansas and opened our store and studio. All of our pottery is hand made on a potters wheel. We mix our own clays and glazes and fire our wares in a gas fired reduction kiln. Each piece is crafted with it's user in mind.
Beginning 2017 we are now located at our new home and studio atop Petit Jean Mountain in Central Arkansas.
