Welcome to The Penland Potters
The Penland Potters is a group of nine clay studios located within a three mile radius of the Penland School of Crafts in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. There is rich diversity in the way these artists work in clay, from quiet well-designed functional pots to thought-provoking figurative sculpture. Each artist has a clear, distinct and personal approach to their clay work. Some of the studios represent the work of one artist, while other studios are shared by partners, often working in different media.
All the artists welcome visitors, and their close proximity to one another makes it easy to see all nine studios. Click on the links at the left or on the photos below to learn more about each of these destinations.
Several maps are available to help you find us when you visit, both in paper form that we can mail to you, or online versions that you can print yourself.
