Handmade pottery by Maggie and Freeman Jones in the mountains of North Carolina.

Inspired by nature and antique ceramic art; functional, sculptural and decorative. 


Maggie and Freeman Jones make their living from the very stuff of creation. Clay has a mind of its own, but with patience, persistence and respect can be persuaded to do about anything that you can imagine.

We are located in the mountains of NC, Southeast of Asheville and North of Lake Lure. We work in a studio at our home. We also have a small house 5 miles away that we use for a Showroom and Open House events. This Showroom is a Full House of Pottery. We try to keep it open on Saturdays unless we have a show elsewhere. Call us for an appointment any day of the week.

North America is Turtle Island and Turtle Island is a story of Creation

In its simplest form, a turtle swam to the bottom of the waters that covered the world and brought up mud to make the land. Turtle hatched her eggs on this land and everything that is came from this.
