Mark Of The Potter is the oldest craft shop in the same location in Georgia. For 44 years now we have endeavored to provide the best functional stoneware by our own potters and specially selected potters from around the southeast and U.S.A. We are located on the Scenic 197 Moonshine Highway 10 miles north of Clarkesville, Georgia. Come visit us and then write a review. We appreciate hearing what our customers like and what we could do to improve our shop.

This shop truly showcases local craftspeople. You won't find anything "made in China" here. And the scenery is beautiful.

Very authentic and down to earth. In winter, you'll be greeted with a warm, old style wood fire. Through the remaking seasons, enjoy the original pottery and the great location... trout stream, rushing water, big trout... God's country. It keeps drawing me back!

This is a craft coop concentrating on the work of local potters, but you never know what you will find here. The building is an old water mill and you can even feed the fish from the porch!
