Welcome to JCR Designs

Welcome to JCR Designs handmade Art Pottery. In her studio conveniently located in North Asheville, Julie designs a distinctive mid-range (cone 6 electric /solar), lead-free, fully functional, collection. Inspired by the flora and fauna of western North Carolina’s stately pines, majestic oaks, lush shrubbery, rolling landscapes and open sky, her hand-carved originals offer a balanced and breathtaking nature-scape. Each unique piece features exquisite images of the stunning scenery and terrain of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We appreciate your ongoing support! At this time, commissions are no longer being accepted. Stay tuned on Facebook and Instagram to see the final results of some very special custom work.

We had a fabulous turnout at   the Southern Highland’s Craft Guild’s Summer Fair.”  It was a joy selling out of all of the new platter designs in less than an hour!

Fresh variations of the themes to connect with what’s already been done are in the works… Hint- (Hank the Tank hasn’t found any cheesecake or pie yet.)

Thank you so much for your continued support!
