About Our Pottery

Rock Riffle Run Pottery is a boutique pottery that lovingly makes stoneware ceramic and terra cotta pottery on a wheel (hand-thrown) and every peice is signed, keeping alive an art form that is well over 3000 years old.

We produce a line of fully functional Stoneware, designed to be used and enjoyed on a daily basis. Within the last 10 years we have expanded to include Terra-Cotta gardening accessories and giftware. Most recently, we added our line of exquisite and enchanting Miniature Pottery.

Clay for our stoneware and terra cotta pottery is mined at Cedar Heights Clay Company, some 50 miles west of the little town of Shade, Ohio. The clay was laid down 350 million years ago as the earth formed what now is called the Appalachian Mountain Range. Rock Riffle Run Pottery is located in the Appalachian foothills—beautiful, and close to clay deposits—simply a wonderful place for a pottery to be.

And the name Rock Riffle Run Pottery originates from the boundary marker "Rock Riffle Run", a creek that borders the property where the original studio was located.

Our Passion, Stoneware as Art for the Home

The roar of the burners...the white hot glow as the spy holes are removed from the kiln as it nears the peak firing temperature of 2400 degrees....the awakening of a piece of clay which comes to life as the potters wheel spins...hundreds of ceramic pieces sparkling in the sun, with each stoneware or terra cotta piece memorable in its transition from a piece of clay in our hands into a beautiful piece of art for the home.

These are but some of the things at Rock Riffle Run Pottery that have kept us excited, fascinated and fed our imagination for over 30 years in creating our line of functional stoneware. Creating hand-thrown stoneware pottery is never the same, and is always exciting. This is what we experience as we hold the pieces which someday will be someone else’s treasure, and why we are here—for you.
