His pottery occupies one section of the shop. I found the pieces very interesting. Was worth walking around the shop.
Pottery here is beautiful however very expensive. We admired the pottery but did not purchase any. We looked at several pieces that could be used for serving pieces but opted to purchase other items made locally. Nice pieces just not willing to spend the $ on just one thing.
Thank you for the nice review, salt glaze work is very expensive, not many potters make it any more because it is very hard to produce and destroys your kiln. I do make some more reasonably prices items in Porcelain that are fired in an electric kiln. More
Beautiful locally made pottery, a great remembrance of your trip. It is on the expensive side but high quality. Staff is very attentive and courteous.
Thank you for the nice review More
While visiting Bermuda last week my wife and I took a trip up to the top of the island to Dockyard. We arrived and walked around the indoor shops but located outside in the center of dockyard we found an absolute gem ! Jon Faulkner pottery ! Inside was handmade salt glaze pottery that was just fantastic! The potter himself... More
Jon's craftsmanship and pottery is world class and quite inspiring. His pieces are whimsical and quirkily engineered. As an inhabitant of St George's at the other end of Bermuda, visiting his display room is the best reason for me to make the trip to Dockyard. I haven't ever visited the pottery when the kilns were fired up, so I can't... More
Thank you for the great review More
It was mezmerizing to watch these artisits take "sand" and turn it into the most beautiful pieces of glass. We were in awe of the entire process and are now proud owners of a couple of pieces of usable art.
Stop by if you're in the area. There is gorgeous work in this studio, but you don’t want to spend too much time in here. #1. It’s soooo hot in there. #2. The place is very small and each step you take in there exponentially increases your chances of bumping into and/or breaking something #3. Everything in there is VERY... More
Thank you for the compliment on my work. Regarding the heat. yes its hot, I fire the kiln in the studio, it is actually made here, very authentic. More
This place was hot as Hades, so you don't want to spend a great amount of time browsing. There might have been some great finds if you could endure the heat. He has some pretty things, but not a large selection.
Yes its hot, you have visited at the hottest time of the year and with 4 kilns firing in the shop A/C is out of the question, my salt kiln is built in the shop, I fire it to 2370 degrees right there, people think its great to watch when I fire it, it would be a shame to isolate... More
If you are a pottery lover, this store is worth a visit. Jon Faulkner's work is amazing and some of the most original styling and work I have seen. The salt glazing techniques he uses yield superb colors and finishes. However, do not go expecting a bargain. The goods are pieces of art, and are priced as such.
Thank you for my first and nicest review, it is very much appreciated. Jon Faulkner. More
