Learn more about pottery by participating in an internship at Smoke in the Mountains.

Participate in a Wood Firing
Rob fires his traditional outdoor wood fire kiln about 4-5 times a year. We are always looking for volunteers to move wood, load/unload, make wadding, stoke the fire, and watch the temperature. If you are interested in participating in the next wood firing, contact Rob to find out what’s needed and when the next firing will happen.
Are you already a potter? Inquire about production work! We always have handles to pull, logos to apply, and small vessels to throw.
Purchase fine crafted pottery right from the source. We accept cash and check. From Settawig Rd., near Brasstown, take Dog Branch Rd. all the way to the end of the road and follow the pottery signs.
Wednesday – Sunday: 10 a.m. till 5 p.m.
Monday & Tuesday: Closed
Special appointments are also available.
