stoneware plate and coffee mug 140

Welcome to the home of Hughes Pottery!  We're a husband and wife team of artists that create functional stoneware pottery for your kitchen and your table.  Each piece is handmade one at a time on our wheels- no molds or forms are ever used.  Everything you see here was produced in our small home studio in Central Pennsylvania from food safe, microwave safe, non-toxic materials.

We don't make the kind of art that you put behind glass and never touch.  We want our work to get covered in oatmeal, filled with your favorite wine and used to serve your grandmother's famous sage and cornbread stuffing!

What we make is simply beautiful art that becomes part of your daily life.


-Charles Hughes and Rowan Rose

What our customers are saying:

"So very very beautiful. I am tempted to smash all the rest of my crockery so I have an excuse to buy more! "

"Gorgeous pottery and super fast delivery.  The pottery was so well packaged I think I could have thrown the box into the Grand Canyon and it still wouldn't have broken! Thanks so much for the great experience!"

"Simply stunning!! I love the way the leaf drapes over the edge... It sounds crazy, but I feel happier and more peaceful when I hold it, even when it's empty!"

Hughes Pottery

Bringing the value of handmade to your family table, café, brewpub or restaurant. This is our story as it unfolds.

<p>Pretty nice firing. I did a few tumblers for the Non pub club common folk too :) no medallions. Also the plates and pie plates look great! #beer (at Tionesta, Pennsylvania)<br/>

<p>The @clarionriverbrew tumblers are finished! Mostly finished. I lost 6 in the firing, I had 5 extra in the kiln so I’m short one. Luckily I have 5 more to go into the kiln today. You alway always need to make extras just in case! #brewpub #crbc #hughespottery #wholesalepottery #pubclub #localpottery  (at Tionesta, Pennsylvania)<br/>
