Handmade Pottery

I pride myself in creating the highest quality products

My name is Don Reed. I am the artist and craftsman behind Crab Orchard Pottery.

Every piece I make is one of a kind, and evokes the nature surrounding our mountain cabin. My work is fired in my wood kiln and is crafted using a variety of clays and innovative glazes. I strive to use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.

My work is frequently shown at festivals throughout the Southeast. Additionally, I am available via email at for commissions, large orders, and other special requests.
