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.

Nice stop on our mountain trip. We had a group of 20 stop here and enjoy the creek, the brown trout and the beautiful pottery. Would recommend.

We love stopping by here every time we visit Helen!! The pottery is beautiful and so unique! I like watching them make different things as well. My husband prefers to go out on the back porch and feed the fish in the river!
