Since 1969





MotP shop







We Are Open Year Round!

We are...

Open everyday, Monday through Sunday,

10am until 6pm.


Except for the rare occasion of inclement spring and summer weather (or tropical storms such as Irma or Alberto, etc. and no power due to trees down) when our areas' roads are just too trecherous to drive.  If you are not sure then give us a call.  Leave a message if we can't get to the phone right away and if we're open we will  give you a call.  If you leave your phone number of course.

Recently though we've had intermittent phone service.  (Thanks local phone system!)  You could try to email us.

Have you been here before?

If not... glad you found us.

If you have...  Welcome back!


We try to keep the same "flavor" and ambiance in the place.  But we also try to freshen and tweek occasionally too.  It's like a step back in time with contemporary and traditional wares.  There's a little museum thrown in too.



Thanks for stopping by!


Every day is a little different.  We had an exceptional fall color season in 2016.  The fall color season in 2017 was just plain weird.

Driving to Mark of the Potter was and can be an adventure with sights to see along the way.  So take your time and enjoy winding along Scenic Highway 197.  Watch out for the turkeys, deer and occasional bear.  We'll be here waiting for your arrival.

Fall drive.

You can see our photos of fall 2016 on our facebook page.






Mark of the Potter is the oldest craft shop in the same location in Georgia.

For over 49 years we have endeavored to provide the best functional stoneware by our own potters and from some specially selected potters from around the southeast and the continental U.S.


We are located on the Scenic 197 Moonshine Highway 10 miles north of Clarkesville, Georgia.

Here we are, along with our neighbors at Blackhawk Flyfishing, on Georgia Traveler, Episode 410.  Just click on the link below the image to watch (it will take you to the GPB Media webpage.)  Our segment starts at about 11:20 or so.  The whole episode is worth a watch though if you haven't seen it.  Thanks David!

Recent Activities

Recent happenings and stuff coming up...


We are enjoying bright spring greens and heading toward summer.  The mountain laurel have bloomed.  Elderberry are blooming as are daylillies along the roads and in yards.  Rododendron are beginning to bloom also.

W are beginning to receive outside work from some of our 30-40 potters.

And of course
our very own Mark of the Potter potters will continue to make and fire pots so that we have fresh, warm stoneware pottery coming into the shop every month.







==================






All of the pottery at Mark of the Potter is handcrafted in the U.S.A.

Special thanks to all the friends, neighbors and visitors locally and from around the world.  Mark of the Potter would not be the same without you!


All of our pottery is food safe using only lead-free glazes and clays.  Microwave safe and most are oven safe too.  They can be washed in the dishwasher or as some customers prefer, hand washed. 





Be sure and visit our facebook page for some of the most recent happenings and photos.


Hope you and your family had a great winter, spring and are beginning to enjoy summer!
