Eastern Market Pottery – Photo Essay
by Larry Janezich
Eastern Market Pottery has been a fixture of Eastern Market since 1968. After the April 2007 fire, the studio was relocated from the tower at the rear of the market to market’s south end lower level, entrance at 7th and C Streets.
In addition to selling pottery inside the studio, Eastern Market Pottery offers classes in pottery making four nights a week and on Thursday mornings. Classes are taught by skilled potters and instruction is individualized to meet the needs of students at all skill levels.
Eastern Market Pottery was established in 1968 by Harold Guilland in Eastern Market to help cover living expenses while he finished writing Early American Folk Pottery, published in 1971. Current owner Chuck Brome purchased the business in 1974 after working as an instructor and studio manager.
The staff includes owner, Chuck Brome; studio manager and instructor, Susan Jacobs, and instructors Ellen Jaffe, Audrey Jones, and Lynn Murphy.
