My husband accidentally broke my favorite pottery bowl that I used almost every day. I was a tad peeved! I found this lovely piece. It is perfect! I just love looking at it and using it. I didn't think that I could find a replacement for my lost bowl...but I have. Thank you so much!

I absolutely love the mug I chose and the kind customer service I received in helping me find the piece I wanted. The craftsmanship is beautiful and the soundly made. I will cherish it for many years to come. I highly recommend this shop and their beautiful products.

Winchester Pottery is the husband & wife team of potter Tony & equine artist Mindy Winchester. We make our living as studio artists out of our rural western Iowa home.
We have a reduction kiln & a salt kiln, and at least three distinct lines of pottery
Tony is the potter & makes all the pots: both his personal contemporary art pottery as well as our collaborative pieces decorated with horses & landscapes by Mindy.
Every piece we make is wheel thrown, one of a kind and all decorations done free hand. We are both in the studio full time & travel to about 20 juried art fairs & horse expos a year to offer our work.
Tony is a multi national award winning potter, 4 time Grand Champion of the US Pottery Games, and has been a studio potter since 1993. He has been featured in Ceramics Monthly, and in the Smithsonian gift shop.
Mindy is a self-taught equine artist,doodling horses on everything since childhood. She specializes in representing individual breeds & equestrian disciplines accurately and artfully, has been featured in Horsing Around magazine from the UK, and in Cowboys & Indians magazine July 2012 edition.
