Turtle Island Pottery

Since 1980 Turtle Island Pottery has produced a very popular line of functional stoneware.  The pottery has become very recognizable with its opaque white glaze and hand brushed decorative blue flowers and dragonflies.  New and one-of-a-kind pieces, influenced by antique art pottery are created as well by potters Maggie and Freeman Jones.
