Marshall Pottery was established in 1895 and located in the heart of the piney woods to take advantage of the abundance of the two natural ingredients needed to create pottery—white clay and water. The stoneware production remains much the same as it has been manufactured in the past with the exception of electricity turning the potter’s wheels instead of the potter’s kick.
The museum shows the art of pottery making, from the beginning of digging the clay to the end step of finished pieces. In the main showroom, people can view hundreds of kinds of pottery while watching regular demonstrations of pottery making and firing where master potters transform a lump of clay into a piece of art.
