During the 1920's, Jugtown Pottery reinvigorated a flagging craft by apprenticing local potters and also by encouraging them to produce work appealing to a wider audience. Many of the well known potters in the area started out a Jugtown. The Pottery is currently owned by...More

Interesting and lovely pottery, with beautiful glazes - both for practical uses and for display as lovely ceramic art. Jugtown Pottery also has an interesting history, which you can ask about if you're interested. Well worth visiting.
