Joppa Mountain Pottery
Rutledge, Tennessee

We are known for our Stoneware and Raku Pottery. Each piece is either wheel-thrown or hand-sculpted and then decorated, carved, painted, glazed and kiln-fired using our own hands.  The beauty of our handmade pottery is that no two pieces are exactly the same, giving it the uniqueness, originality and overall superior quality our customers expect.
