Pretty much the sole reason I was pushing for a Vermont weekend was to visit this place. I first learned about Farmhouse Pottery last spring, while working at JACK + TOBA. We carried their pieces in the shop and I probably spent most of my earnings on their goods (the berry bowl is my favorite). I'd been itching to go for a while but something always came up, so I was happy that it finally worked out last weekend.
The storefront is located in Woodstock, VT, just down the road from the charming town center. It's comprised of two showrooms and the workshop where all the pieces are created. They welcome everyone to walk through the workshop, where we met a friendly gentleman whipping up these in minutes flat.
Walking into this place is like walking into a mini heaven. It smells of cedar and pine and is packed with beautiful pottery, linens, glassware, jewelry etc. It's safe to say I was freaking out a little and wanted to take everything home with me. Instead, I restrained myself and snagged a big coffee mug. Scroll on for photos and more info!
I love the whole Farmhouse Pottery philosophy and attitude. They use a clay recipe that they specially engineered, and pride themselves on using quality natural materials in everything they sell. I love that no two pieces are identical; each piece has character and reflects the potter who made it. Their mission is all about timelessness and authenticity and it shows in their work.
If you're driving up North I highly recommend stopping in to check it out. Everyone is super friendly and it's certainly worth the trip. Read more about the founders (here).
