The Jones Pottery is owned and operated by Matt and Christine Jones in the beautiful Big Sandy Mush valley of Leicester, North Carolina (just west of Asheville in Buncombe county).



Our objective is to make a full range of pots for the garden and home, and offer them for sale at twice yearly 'Kiln Openings' and regional pottery shows.  For more information about our sales check the schedule page.

Our home gallery is also open to the general public throughout the year by appointment.  Please call to arrange a time when someone will be around to assist you. (828) 683-2705 




My apprentices help me with all aspects of making and firing the work (check the apprenticeship section in the navigation menu for more detailed information).  We throw and decorate every piece of pottery by hand and fire them in a large wood-burning kiln.

My wife Christine keeps up with the books, tends beautiful flower beds, and conducts the Kiln Sales.  Without her help, I never would have made it this far.  Against her better judgement, I added the next two photos right at the bottom of the home page!

 What a freak!                           Nimrod!

I enjoy making pots and take the task seriously, but I try not to take myself too seriously.  I hope you will enjoy perusing this website.  It is meant to introduce you to me and my work and educate you about the nature of making pottery for a living.

Thanks for visiting,

--Matt Jones
