Thanks to a generous donation of incredibly beautiful pottery from Jimmy & Molly Richardson of Hemphill Pottery, Buy Haywood will showcase local food with style this season through our Cooking Local Together Project!
“My grandmother always had a beautiful arrangement on her table,” says Richardson. “Sometimes it was nothing more than a dried seed head from faded flowers and a few sticks that she collected from her yard, but it brought so much warmth and beauty to her home.” Richardson’s childhood memories of his Grandmother and her love of the outdoors inspired his bud vase collection—that has grown to include larger pots, vases, coffee mugs, platters and other special order items.
The Richardsons make all their own glazes that are layered to achieve a deeper richer appearance. Some items also feature a natural wood ash glaze to create a unique rustic appeal that cannot be found in mass produced pottery. All stoneware is fired to Cone 6.
Hemphill Pottery’s heritage inspired pieces range in price from $10-$75.00 and can be found at Grass Root Gardens, 1368 Dellwood Road, Waynesville.
