Wedding Platter made at Oxide Pottery

Oxide Pottery, in historic downtown Lynchburg, VA, opened it’s doors in the fall of 2009.  The store is stocked with porcelain and stoneware goods made in the attached studio.

Large selection of hand thrown mugs.

There is always a selection of wheel-thrown and hand-built functional ceramics as well as other handmade objects, such as wooden utensils, letterpress cards, candles, locally produced bitters and jewelry.  The most popular pottery items include plates, bowls, mugs, vases, garlic keepers, wine cups and honey pots.  Vases, ring dishes and various art pieces can also be found.  Seasonal items are produced throughout the year, including zombie mugs in October!

Soap/sponge dishes

Three potters are currently represented, Joe, Chatham and Justin.  As a former professor of ceramic and sculpture Joe creates artwork that he is proud to exhibit.  Chatham, Joe’s daughter, works  with paper patterns and textures to develop new patterns  of items to produce.  Justin, Chatham’s husband, creates functional pottery plus drawings and prints that are sold in the store.  The ceramics are made with lead-free glazes that are dishwasher and microwave safe.  The work produced in the studio is fired in three electric kilns on site weekly, offering a continuous supply of new items and custom orders.  Currently Oxide is represented in galleries and museum shops in 21 states through its wholesale line.
