Anyone know of any good pottery places to visit around Austin TX? We will be
in Austin for about 3 days around the 1st of Jan. If the weather is good we
will go east and go through Dallas and down to Austin and back through
southern Mississippi. The drive would be a lot more fun if we could find
some pottery stuff to visit. Now sure much will be open but there must be
some pot stuff to see on the way. Mostly interested in studios, always good
to see how others have theirs set up, and suppliers.

It has been a while since I have had the pleasure of visiting Austin, but
when I did visit there and the relatively nearby Kerrville Folk Festival
(which was held at the same time as a large art fair in Kerrville), I found
I usually came home with something done by Don Brimberry. He makes good,
strong, functional work. Mixing bowls, kitchen canister sets, lamps, etc.,
all designed to stand the rigors of everyday use. My partner at the time and
I purchased many items from Brimberry and I don't think that any of them
have broken yet.

His glaze applications, while very recognizable, have an individuality to
them. So your set of glasses match, but still look different from one
another. I have seen too many glazes at shows that may as well have been
applied by a machine - dip one color here, one color there, put a zigzag
wiggle across the bottom, next piece, dip one color here, ... - I think you
know what I mean.

Another artist in the area, if you can find her, is Paige Adkins. I'm not
sure if she is still making pottery or not. Paige also makes very
utilitarian pieces.

Good luck!
