handmade pottery purple


We like to call this one blue berries and cream.  Dark purple floats over a bed of light blue.

Our hand thrown pottery is hand crafted starting as a ball of clay and thrown on a wheel, no two are exactly the same. Every vessel is handmade and finished on the bottom with a trimmed foot. If you look closely you will find throw lines or possibly a finger print. Our high fired stoneware is made for every day use in modern kitchens and striking enough for display in any home. 

Our Glazes

At Gauley River Pottery we mix our own glazes to get that special one of a kind look. You will not find our signature glaze "Gauley Green" anywhere else. This spectacular glaze is solely inspired by the Gauley River. Gauley Green flows on the pottery like the whitewater rivers so near its place of origin. With rivers and streams of blue and green flowing into pools of cream each piece is unusual and unique but similar enough to make a beautiful dining set with all the accessories.  Over the last decade and half we have developed four combination glazes that we feel capture the beauty of West Virginia.  In addition to these we have them seperated into some lovely solid shades of West Virginia inspired colors.  These are samples of our most popular glazes.


The Finished Piece (so nice)

Gauley River Pottery is oven proof, microwave and dishwasher safe. Our fine pottery is of the highest quality in every detail and refined to perfection, we do not sell seconds, dents or dings. We stand behind our pottery with a one year warranty against defects in craftsmanship.  As you browse through our gallery we hope you will see the beauty of the mountain state that has inspired us to create these one of a kind works of art. Enjoy your visit, if you have any questions just send us a email.  We have many many items in stock, but at times we need to make the items ordered.  We will email you right away with a time frame on when to expect your items.
