A little about Mark of the Potter.


Once upon a time...

...a nice couple in Georgia decided to create a pottery as a retirement project.  They found the old Grandpa Watts gristmill had been closed due to flood damage or "high waters."  They acquired the property, repaired the buildings, set up their studio, remodeled the upstairs into an apartment and opened up Mark of the Potter in 1969.

Now we are the oldest craft shop in the same location in Georgia.  For over 47 years now we have endeavered to provide the best functional stoneware by our own potters and from some specially selected potters around the southeast and U.S.A.

We have a pretty cool staff here at Mark of the Potter to look after the place, answer your questions and help you find what you need.


Got a question or need directions?  Just ask.  You can call us during business hours at 706.947.3440 or email us at email.


We do Wedding Registries!  Click here for more information.


To give you an idea of how some people view us, here is an article published in the Georgia Magazine for our 40th anniversary...

Making its mark. Mark of the Potter tallies 40 years. 

And here is an archive of sorts with various events and posts from our past.  Recent or longer back.

Older stuffs.(link coming eventually)

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! (Yeah, you've probably seen this on another page but we really do appreciate you for visiting, returning and dragging in your own friends and neighbors!  Thanks again!!)

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.
