Little Meadows, Pennsylvania has been the home of MUD AND FIRE POTTERS for almost two decades.  The serene Endless Mountains with their breathtaking beauty frame the site, creating a textbook background for the studio.  


Throwing pots and wood-firing in The Firefly, our well-seasoned kiln, remain at the forefront of studio life.  Often months after transforming a lump of clay into functional vessels or sculptural forms, time to wood-fire arrives, only to be followed by the anticipation of unloading the kiln.  This always generates a renewed sense of awe and accomplishment in this centuries-old art form and craft.  


Our studio produces pottery that has slowly evolved into a unique and recognizable style characterized by a simplicity of form, distinctive surface textures along with shell markings and stamps.  This kiln yields wonderful shino glazes with a modest amount of ash.


Cupping a hand-crafted tea bowl as it slowly reaches your lips is a powerful and personal experience, adding warmth and beauty to the sensation of sipping your favorite beverage.


Our studio is located at 1002 Bow Bridge Road, just one mile east of Route 858.  We can be contacted at (570)623-3335 and  Due to COVID-19, appointments to visit can be scheduled at a mutually convenient time.  At your leisure, we hope you will peruse our website, and find us on facebook.
