Student Work

I For the past four summers I have been giving pottery lessons to one young student.  He recently entered some of this summer's work in the Saline County Fair in Nebraska.   He took home top prize for his wheel thrown mug with a dragon design in the 4H Home Environment category. He did very well with the rest of his pieces too.  Congratulations Taylor!

Camp Creek Show

It is the third weekend in July, so that means you will find us at the 40th Annual Camp Creek Thresher and Antique Machinery Show.  The show grounds are 2 miles east of Waverly NE on Bluff Rd. It will be the 32nd year The Potter's House has exhibited and demonstrated pottery inside the show's Craft Building.  Hope to see you there!

Nebraska Renaissance Faire

This weekend is the Nebraska Renaissance Faire, rescheduled from the end of April. Location is Miller's Landing on the Missouri River in Omaha. It begins Friday evening 6-9.   

Rain, Rain.

Looking out the window as the rain comes down. Thankful the producer of the Nebraska Renaissance Faire has postponed the event scheduled for this weekend to June. June can be stormy as well, but it should at least be warmer.  This would be a cold, wet weekend to be at an outdoor festival.

SO our next event will be the Renaissance Festival of Nebraska. It will be held two weekends, May 7-8 & May 14-15  at the Bellevue Berry & Pumpkin Ranch.

JOIN US IF YOU CAN at both events!. 

Busy times!

Firing another glaze kiln today.  Our first festival of the season is just two weeks from today.  We will be vending at the Nebraska Renaissance Faire/Midlands Pirate Festival  held at River City Star Landing (Miller's Landing) in Omaha. April 30-May 1.  Here is a link to their Facebook page Nebraska Renaissance Faire

Glaze Kiln

I fired a glaze kiln yesterday. Will open it in a few hours. Always exciting to open the kiln and see what you have. It is a bit like Christmas morning!

Etsy Store

We've added an Etsy page to the website. Right now we only have a few items listed. We will be adding more, check the link on our Etsy page on the menu to see what we have.

Building Inventory

Winter months finds me working on the potter's wheel creating new pots to add to our inventory.  These past few weeks I have been making mugs and goblets. Our first festival will be April 30/May 1 in the Omaha area.

Looking to 2016

We hope everyone had a good Holiday Season.  We look forward now to 2016.   Winter is a time for us to rebuild our inventory for our upcoming festival seasons.  We will begin vending at festivals in May.

We are also building a storefront on Etsy.  Limited listings there right now, but that will change as we continue to create unique stoneware items in the next few months.  When we get more listings the link will be added here.


                                            Happy New Year!

Jewelry Items

We are adding more decorative jewelry items to our inventory. Shown are two pendant chokers. The clay pendants are about 1" in diameter with added beadings.  Both feature celtic knots in the stamped designs.
