About the pots
The pots we make are meant to be used. They celebrate the quiet heroism of domesticity, and provide astonishing beauty to brighten your days.
Mark makes his pots with regional clays and glaze materials, and fires them in one of two very large wood burning kilns, and on rare occasions in a large gas kiln. All the pots made at the pottery are identified by maker, kiln, and a chronological time line.
Mark was awarded a United States Artist Fellowship in 2015 for contributions to the creative landscape and arts ecosystems of the county, and was a finalist for the 2015 Balvenie Rare Craft Award for contributions to the maintenance and revival of traditional or rare craft techniques. In 2014 he was awarded a Voulkos Fellowship at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, MT, for his outstanding contributions to the ceramic arts.
At the center, with his colleagues from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, stands this tall, handsome man from England, Mark Hewitt - place, at home - productively, inspirationally at work, a great American master.
We are fortunate that North Carolina continues to nurture pot makers and pot uses, and that the former have welcomed Mark Hewitt in their number. May the old jars continue to inspire him.
His big-hearted pots are on a truly heroic scale — heroic in conception and execution.
They place him in the company of the towering folk potters who have preceded and inspired him.
