Hoffman Pottery

We are located in Grayson County, VA, home of Virginia's highest peaks, Mt. Rogers and Whitetop. We are surrounded by the beauty of the mountains and only minutes from the New River so the out-of-doors is a constant in our lives and an inspiration in our work.
The skills required of a potter are varied: design, the techniques of wheel throwing, handbuilding, moldmaking, glaze formulation and application are supported by the less obvious needs for the skills of a carpenter and electrician to maintain the shop and its equipment, and general business abilities.  We find that our varied background is often an asset as we move from one aspect of our work to another.
Our design process is sometimes individual, sometimes a collaboration.  Fortunately our tastes are usually similar enough that we each can identify with all of our pieces.
