Welcome to Southern Folk Pottery Collectors Society


In 1988, the Southern Folk Pottery Collectors Society was formed that the vernacular potters from the American South deserved recognition in the richness of their time honored craft. By 1989, the Society was formed by way of introducing the traditional wares in New York City at the Sideli’s Pier Show and what a huge reaction occurred as a broader audience was introduced to hand made folk pottery. Around 1991, a Shop-Museum was founded to further the acquisition and educating exposure of these Southern artisans. The potters represented by the Society are those who have the God gifted artistry as He is the potter and we are His clay. The potters, clay, glaze resources, production, and finished creations are those that were handed down from generation to generation without academic training. The Society is the nationally celebrated resource for works of active potters and their predecessors of whom are no longer with us. By way of Society Newsletters, Symposiums, Southern Folk Pottery Collectors Society Auction Catalogs, and unparalleled experience there is no other venue for identification and acquiring of 18th, 19th, and 20th century forms and likewise at the disposal of the serious collector as well as Museum levels of interest. Our printed documentary's of both visual and researching of potters and their wares are a prize for the continuation into the 21st century for embracing a trip back in time and the achievable possibility to build a remarkable collection that is unmatched. Understanding our nations heritage, these potters who have stayed true to the tradition are interested in increasing the exposure of their work beyond their southern borders. The Society is committed to advance the knowledge and connoisseurship of Southern Folk Pottery, so welcome to the Southern Folk Pottery Collectors Society. Celebrating our 20th Anniversary, 1990-2010.
