Welcome

George Scatchard Master Potter

unique hand made pottery from Vermont

This website is intended to be informational for my customers and other potters. I want to answer the questions people may have about my pottery and how I make it. There is nothing for sale here, just information about the thinking behind my pottery and how I make it. For sales, you can go to https://www.etsy.com/shop/GeorgeScatchardPots I have been making pottery since I was a child. Now I am an old potter who's professional career began in Vermont in 1960. Over the years since, I have supplied shops in New York and Boston with planters, garden lights and fountains, set up and run the University of Vermont's ceramics program, moved to California to make and sell pottery, came back to Vermont and set up my present pottery. In the late 1970's I started a ceramic lamp business which I recently sold to another lamp company. Now I  have returned to my roots and am a studio potter throwing pots on a wheel and firing them in my large home made car kiln. In many ways I am a throwback to an earlier time. I mix my clay by hand with a hand held mortar mixer. I blend natural clays and minerals and use no other additives.  My glazes are made from recipes I have developed or modified myself over the years. My large kiln is now reduction fired with kerosene to cone 10 and over. Check out George on Instagram and  Facebook
