About Us

Welcome to my store!  My name is Jan Bostwick and I have been creating and selling pottery since 1982.  My focus is to create pieces that are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing; I love the idea of my customers owning a piece of art they can use and enjoy every day. 


In 1998, I finally listened to the little voice that had been telling me to leave my desk job of twenty years and pursue pottery full time.  When I’m not making pottery in my home studio, I am on the road selling my pieces at various art shows across the country.  The decision to make my living as an artist was a big leap of faith, but the adventure of exploring new places and meeting new people makes it all worth it.  I’d rather be sitting in my booth in the rain than stuck behind a desk any day!


I design my pottery with practicality in mind.  My serving pieces can be used alone or in combination, and all are dishwasher safe.  I use a variety of glaze colors but keep the same combinations so people can add matching pieces to their collections.  Above all, I want to make my customers happy, whether they’re giving a piece of my pottery as a gift or using it to adorn their own home.   


Please enjoy browsing my store for current items.  My events page is constantly updated throughout the year so you can keep an eye out for shows in your area.  If you have any questions, visit my contact page to send me an e-mail, or call 248-542-6008 and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.  Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery unless the item you request is in stock.


Thanks again for visiting, and have fun shopping Jan’s Pottery!
