Mark Hewitt Pottery Spring Kiln Opening

Enjoy a beautiful spring day in the country! Twice a year we fire 1500+ pots in our massive wood kiln and invite everyone to visit the pottery for a Kiln Opening! It’s a great chance to tour the pottery workshop, walk inside the massive kilns, and shop in our large barn/gallery/showroom for beautiful pottery for yourself or for the perfect gift.

The shelves are full of beautiful mugs, tumblers, plates and bowls, elegant vases, pitchers, lidded jars, serving bowls, large platters and planters, all made by master potter Mark Hewitt and his current intern. All the pots are stamped with the firing number (in Spring 2023 the stamp was ’109’) and Mark or the interns’s signature stamp.

Mark’s new selection of ‘Big Pots’ –  life-sized vases and jars – are also on display. Families are always welcome. We have swings!
