Vermont Pottery Studio

Robert and his wife, Christine, live on a former dairy farm, in one of the mountain valleys that surround Bristol, Vermont.  The barn serves as his studio and showroom and the 19th-century farmhouse is their home.

Robert & Christine welcome visitors to the pottery.
Night firing of the Noborigama.

Most of Robert's Stoneware and Porcelain pottery is Wood-Fired in a Noborigama kiln.  A Salt Glazed atmosphere is achieved in the second chamber of this Japanese-style kiln.

The Pit Fired and Raku Pottery is fired in special kilns designed for these unique effects.  Robert throws each piece of pottery individually on a potter's wheel.

History Mugs

Christine & Robert have always had a strong interest in history.  They both grew up surrounded by antique photos, family members, and their stories.  Robert took over compiling his family ancestry.  To share the information he collected, he began putting his ancestor's images and stories on his mugs.

We now do this for other families and recently created History Mugs, a business focused on putting biographies on mugs.

We have produced a number of biographical series including The US Presidents, The Civil War, Athletes, Vermont Residents, and Rodeo Stars.

You can have personalized Custom Mugs made for your family or business. Go to our Custom Mugs section to see samples of business, Genealogy and unique designs we have made for other people.
