"There are no happier people on this planet than those who decide that they want something, define what they want, get hold of the feeling of it even before it's manifestation, and then joyously watch the unfolding, as piece by piece, by piece it begins to unfold. That's the feeling of your hands in the clay"
IN 2012 Jan Hollingsworth, Sandy Whitley, and Laurie Hayes partnered to build The Potters Studio. Their vision was to create a peaceful and inspiring working studio complimented by a unique gallery where customers could browse and appreciate each piece.
A year later The Potters Studio is thriving. Four additional potters have joined us and over 1800 handmade, innovative and contemporary pottery pieces were fired. From functional to whimsical, each artist explores a wide range of distinctive designs and glazes. Our stoneware and porcelain pottery is food, oven and microwave safe.
We've grown to be the place where people come and bring their guests to enjoy our studio gallery and to buy local art.. From our seasonal northern customers to full time residents, we've become part of the Punta Gorda art and civic community. We hosted numerous events that share our knowledge and love of pottery with our customers. Additionally we shared our facility and works to contribute to local community fundraisers.
