I make wood-fired functional pottery for home use as well as sculptural and figurative candleholders.
Handmade in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Specializing in one-of-a-kind decorative vases and lamps. The glazing process is painterly, detailed, delicate, and time consuming. The work is done one piece at a time and multi-fired.
My name, Cindy M Douglass, is literally out in space courtesy of JPL and NASA’s Stardust Project. So Stardust Pottery = business name. I create customer acclaimed, highly functional yarn bowls with whimsy. I also make fun, quirky, clay art in 3D and tiles.
Steve Abee is dedicated to the traditional 19th-century methods of pottery making, such as digging local clays, using traditional wood-ash glazes, and burning his wares in a wood-fired, groundhog kiln.
One of a kind, organically shaped stoneware with fanciful sgraffito design. Also a line of understated, functional glaze-work. Learned pottery making in Japan. My work is available at two locations in Asheville’s River Arts District. Please see my website for details.
Salt and soda fired handmade stoneware pottery. Hand built and wheel-thrown forms. Painted, carved, and glazed with geometric and nature themes.

Since 1984 Maggie and Freeman Jones have been producing a functional and decorative line of stoneware pottery. Since the turn of the new century, they have been producing one of a kind, decorative ceramics still based on function.
