Mark stoking the freshly painted kiln. Pretty kiln = pretty pots!

COVID-19 update
Hi friends,
Today (March 18th) it is impossible to accurately predict what our lives will be like come April 18th. Will we be able to create a safe, enjoyable way for you to come visit the pottery and see/purchase the fabulous new pots from Firing 103?

We can extend our hours, be open many more days, use an appointment app so only a few people are here at a time, let you use your phone to make payments, keep lots of hand wipes and hand sanitzer flowing ~ we can do all that and more, but even all that may still not be enough if we are to stop the community spread of this virus.

So, please check back, and we will keep you posted. We are excited to be opening an online gallery! It was to be open by May 15th, but we are working to get it open sooner.

We will let you know when that is live via our newsletter, Facebook and Instagram.
If you don’t get our newsletter you can sign up here.

In the meantime, be safe, be well, and thanks for being such loyal pottery customers and friends.

PS If you would like a gift card, please email us at hewitts@hewittpottery.com and we will make it happen!

“At his kiln opening in April 1997 the largest members of the new family (of pots) were testaments to Mark’s technical virtuosity combined with a superb artistry that has allowed him to reach new heights, an ascent that we all expect will continue.”
