About Bay Pottery
Located in The Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, The McMichael Family, founders of Bay Pottery, have been making pottery for more than forty years. Working together as a family on the creative projects we enjoy, we bring you innovative works in high reduction fired porcelain. At Bay Pottery we mix our own clay and lead-free glazes from recipes carefully formulated over many years. Bay's unique functional designs are high fired to 2300 degrees F, making them sturdy, dense, oven and dishwasher proof. All pieces are completely lead free.Throughout a twelve hour up-firing we carefully tend our kilns to achieve the beautiful reduction glazes for which Bay Pottery is known.
Each of our exclusive copyrighted designs are unique functional porcelain art works carefully crafted to bring you a creation representing many years of hard work, innovation and dedication to the ceramic arts . All works are durable and non-porous so they will not absorb water, liquids or stains and will remain completely colorfast with usage down through time. Recognized by the discerning buyer for quality, durability and functionality, Bay's unique creations are designed to be fun, beautiful and useful.
