One-Of-A-Kind Pottery by John McCoy

 

John’s pottery is classically inspired, elegant with a contemporary twist. As John says” I like to make pottery that will get used every day. A piece can sit on a shelf and look pretty, but it comes alive when it is a part of our daily life.” People are starting to appreciate handmade objects once again. They realize that a beautifully cooked meal is enhanced by being served on a handmade plate or serving dish. Every day should be a special occasion.”
