Our Story

Prancing Pony Pottery is Anna Marie Torre Wright’s fledgling pottery studio that focuses on creating functional wheel-thrown and hand-built stoneware pottery. Striving to create usable stoneware art that can be enjoyed every day, each piece of pottery is individually thrown or built, fired, and then glazed by the artist in her Richardsville, Virginia, studio. Since each piece of Prancing Pony Pottery stoneware is hand-made by the artist, your item will be a one-of-a-kind piece of pottery that you can use enjoy every day!

Stoneware pottery has a wonderful feel and heft to it. Food seems to taste better when eaten from hand-made pottery; tea a little warmer when sipped from a mug that was hand-formed just for you. Glaze colors can run the gamut from a translucent blush over the clay’s surface to intense tones with a lot of depth. Many of Prancing Pony Pottery’s pieces are glazed in earthy hues over clay bodies that tend to have a lot of character.

All Prancing Pony Pottery stoneware is created using lead-free glazes and most pieces are dishwasher-safe.
