It all started wITH A BLANKET ON THE GROUND…
Claybanks Pottery opened at the existing New Era, Michigan location on January 1st, 1980. However, in the early years before the studio was built, the potters traveled to art fairs to sell their pottery. Often, they didn’t have much in the way of a sophisticated “setup..” They displayed their pottery on a blanket spread out on the ground in the early days.
Today, of course, having developed a reputation for quality pottery and friendly service, Claybanks Pottery sells the majority of their work from their New Era studio and rarely travel to art fairs. Indeed, customers return each year and are greeted as family as they walk into the door of this amazing studio.
We invite you to stop by any day between 10 am and 5 pm.
