Welcome to Monkeytown Pottery

… where Amy Oliver makes pottery, and, she teaches you how!

Loudoun ceramics artist, Amy Oliver, creates one-of-a-kind stoneware originals that reflect her focus on the movement in the thrown form as well as its functionality. She often alters her original thrown forms by carving, sculpting, stamping and faceting, finishing with lead-free, people-friendly glazes that contribute to the texture and design of the final product. All pots are fired in oxidation to a temperature of 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit. All Monkeytown Pottery is dishwasher, microwave, and oven-safe.

Amy Oliver’s project-driven classes are informative and fun. Her many years of teaching experience enable students to show improvements with each session. Students learn skills each class that help them to build bigger, lighter, and more beautiful pots during the course.
