The Potter’s Mark Line

The Potter's Mark, Asheville, Crazy Green Studios, The Village Potters, Marty Black, Eileen Black, Lori Theriault

If you are looking for information on pottery from The Potter’s Mark, Welcome! Marty and Eileen Black, who created The Potter’s Mark, and notably their signature red glazes, have retired after a long and fruitful career. Their work, however, shall not retire! They have asked Village Potter Lori Theriault to continue their line, and she is thrilled and honored to take up the challenge of continuing the legacy of The Potter’s Mark.

Test forms will be made, and glazes tested in a new kiln. Lori will initially focus on work carrying the “Spirit” glaze, while she also develops tests to consistently reproduce The Potter’s Mark signature Red glaze. She will be working with Marty and Eileen to learn about their forms, glaze mixing, application, and kiln firing. This process is expected to last no less than six months to insure consistent results.

Commission delivery dates¬†will be determined once the glazing process has been successfully and consistently produced.
