What is Farmridge Pottery?

Any and all of the pottery you buy here ships from My Raleigh, NC studio.  We ship UPS, FedEx or US mail.  It’s all food safe and dishwasher safe.

Farmridge Pottery was established in 2014 by artisan potter Doug Harris and it’s a real simple simple story here.

I have a garage studio located on Farmridge Rd Raleigh, NC and I throw every day.  I hope people will use the pottery for every day use and enjoy the benefits of high fire stoneware.  It’s a great way to replace plastic in your life and the look and feel of pottery really cannot be duplicated by any other medium.  I stay fairly traditional with my style, and to me, my heroes have always been potters and farmers.  They don’t seem to get much air time on TV eh?

All this started with formal ceramics training in college and the intention was to take on some easy electives so I could get a degree in Chemistry.  It didn’t quite work out that way.  I got a degree in Business and fell in love with ceramics.  So after 25 plus years of a professional career in electronics and instrumentation, I decided I wanted to be a potter.  And so now I pot every day.

It’s hard work, but you don’t have to put up with the energy drain of professional life.  So I like it.
