     Artisan's Guild - Eastern Shore of VA

​​Useful Pots are made by Ann and Russell Jones, in the tiny Chesapeake Bay town of Onancock, on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. 
All work is done in our home studio, included on the ACV Virginia’s Eastern Shore Artisans Trail.

We are both juried artisans with the State Artisans Center of Virginia.
Pottery is a hobby for us, kept alive by talented people nearby and classes at Penland School of Crafts in N.C.
Our work is available at the gallery locations listed here and at the studio.​

Ellen Moore Gallery, Cape Charles, VA
