Betsy began making pots in 1998 when she enrolled in a beginning wheel class at The Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, SC. At the time she was doing an Internship with the museum to complete requirements to graduate from The College of Charleston. After graduating, Betsy moved to the North of the state and eventually began commuting to White County where she had the privilege of using the studio of Jessie Meaders to begin cultivating what she had learned in the brief class at The Gibbes. The Willows Pottery opened soon after and upon hearing of her interest in pottery, she was offered a job running the shop and making pots. Along the way, between work and travel, Betsy has had the opportunity to work with several potters, attend the Penland School of Crafts in NC, and assist in teaching classes at The John C Campbell Folk School.




The images here are snapshots to give you an idea of the style and some of the items that Betsy typically does.  They do not necessarily represent what we currently have in stock.  There may be a special order or two mixed in here as well.
So it is important to remember that the inventory is always changing.

New work comes out of the kiln every four weeks or so depending on the current firing schedule.

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. 


Thanks to all of Betsy's fans and to the friends, neighbors and visitors locally and from around the world.  Mark of the Potter would not be the same without you!
