Northern Light Pot Bellied Mug | Old Barn Pottery

  • Vickie Gray, the potter at Old Barn Pottery, and her husband Paul live on a small heritage farm just 10 minutes outside Lunenburg, a UNESCO world heritage site, in Nova Scotia, Canada. The Pottery Studio is in their old barn, built sometime in the 1960s on the site of the original livestock barn erected by the settlers of their property in the late 1800s.

    "Each piece is individually handmade, so no two pieces are exactly the same. I work on a potter’s wheel to make our pottery rather than using a mold, and I pull every handle by hand rather than using an extruder. I design and mix our glazes in our studio, and strive for both an attractive finish, and something that can be used every day. In fact, I’m so serious about durability and function that our own kitchen is full of our pottery that we use daily."
