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 marvelous response at the Southern Highland’s Craft Guild’s Holiday/Seconds Sale. We enjoyed selling our new holiday ornaments and the whoopsie-daisy pieces. It’s always a pleasure meeting new customers and are grateful to the collectors who have continued to support us over the years.

Our next show is: The Catawba Valley Pottery and Antiques Festival. The date, location and hours of operation are listed on the “Events” page. In the meantime, take some time to scope out the listed galleries that represent us. They are the very best in Western North Carolina.

Thank you so much for your continued support!
