Junkyard Pottery offers handmade items for everyday
use, from utilitarian to decorative. Practically all of our pottery
is hand thrown on the wheel by Carol Howe, who strives to create
practical pieces ranging from cups to bowls to vases, along with specialty
items like candle lamps and kitchen crocks.
Our pottery is made from stoneware
clay that is durable and functional, and is oven, microwave and
dishwasher safe. Our glazes are made on site using minerals, oxides
and wood ash that produce
a wide variety of surfaces and colors. All our glazes
are lead free and non-toxic.
Each creation is fired in an
electric kiln to temperatures in excess of 2000° Fahrenheit.
This solidifies the clay and allows the glaze to melt and then
harden in a prescribed fit. On your next visit to this area
we hope that you will stop
