Vermont Pottery Studio
2017 is our 45th year in business as a full-time working pottery. We want to thank everyone for their support over these many years.
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.
Vermont Open Studio Weekend October 14 & 15th

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.

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.
