Beautiful, Rustic, Handmade Pottery

Here at Crab Orchard Pottery, we pride ourselves at delivering the highest quality products at an affordable price

My name is Don Reed. In 2020, I brought my life-long passion for art to my home located on the Cumberland Plateau in middle Tennessee. Today, I am the owner and craftsman behind Crab Orchard Pottery. 

Every piece I make is one of a kind, and evokes the nature around my home. Most of my pottery is fired in my wood fire kiln at my cabin. My work is crafted using different types of clays and innovative glazes that I make from locally sourced materials. I constantly challenge myself to find creative ways to bring my artistic vision to life by applying traditional techniques to modern forms. 

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