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), 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.

There is an approximate wait time for new commissions of approximately 8-12 months, after receiving the initial deposit. Thank you for your patience, a lot of time is spent on each piece from the initial concept to the final outcome to create unique, heirloom quality pottery.

The new square planters sold quickly.  New sizes, shapes, and subject matter coming in the next couple of months.


Looking forward to seeing you at the Southern Highlands Craft Guild’s 4-day July show. Read more about it on our “events” page.
