Apprentice or Assistant Opportunity

This position is currently filled as of July 2016.  I have begun work with my eighth apprentice, Kerry Porche, and I will advertise again when his apprenticeship comes to an end.  Meanwhile, I will leave the below description up so that potential apprentices can learn about what this opportunity means.


Originally posted in March 2016:

My apprentice of the last year and a half, Dean Pieranunzi, will be moving on at the end of June this summer to begin setting up his own pottery business and continue pursuing music in Asheville, NC.  I am proud of the progress he has made here and look forward to watching him develop independently.


But it is time now to begin looking for a new apprentice or assistant here at the Jones Pottery.  If you are a serious young potter who is looking for an opportunity to grow and develop your skills toward a lifetime of potting, you might want to consider this position.  


I am looking for someone who is willing to do chore work (including: cutting and stacking wood, mixing clay and glazes, processing native materials cleaning kiln, shelves, bricks, etc.) and is interested in developing their throwing and decorating skills.  I supply housing (a cabin apartment on the property) with utilities and a stipend.


Please contact me via email through this website or at or call (828) 683-2705 for more information.
