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!"

<p>It was a very full day of trimming. I got a few handles on some special pieces I made just for my own enjoyment. Tomorrow I’ll get more handles on and some medallions on mugs for @doansbonesbbq  (at Tionesta, Pennsylvania)<br/>

<p>I’ve made good progress with the trimming so far. I’ll do some more after dinner. I think the majority of adding handles will happen tomorrow night. My morning and early afternoon are already scheduled. Chiropractor in the AM and Grandson Jaxon nap duty in the afternoon. Thursday is delivery day again. (at Tionesta, Pennsylvania)<br/>

<p>I added another 30 pots this morning. XXL mugs and some bowls. I think I’ll be able to do another board or two before the first ones are ready to trim and handle. The big question is what flat surfaces aren’t already covered in pottery? (at Tionesta, Pennsylvania)<br/>

<p>Noon update! Added another 3 boards. Taking a lunch break and I’ll see if I can get a few more done. I have strong suspicions I’m going to have a nap mid afternoon. (at Tionesta, Pennsylvania)<br/>
