Kelly Pottery

Kelly Pottery Kelly pottery specializes in Japanese influenced, utilitarian ceramics. Kelly Pottery has a simple mission: to craft useful and beautiful ceramic objects that are equally at home on the table and the mantle.

Each piece is designed, thrown, etched, glazed, and fired by potter Steve Kelly. After studying pottery in Montana, a region rich in ceramic tradition, Kelly apprenticed with a master potter in the hills of Virginia, where, in keeping with the ethos of traditional Asian ceramics, he spent thousands of hours creating vessels that both honor the humble nature of clay and transcend it.
