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 beauty and flora 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 are glad to  be able to  provide you with an on-line shop here on this website. With just a click, you may  purchase my latest pieces,  shipping, handling,  and insurance included with  PayPal service,   if you prefer as a guest with the credit card of your choice, or  call in your credit card over the phone with our Square service. Local customers are also welcome to pay with cash or check.

Our next “big event” is coming in February of 2021. The 34th Annual National Arts and Crafts Conference and Shows have become a Virtual Event for the ENTIRE month ! We will be listed in the Contemporary Craftsfirms Show. I am working on some new vase designs all one-of-a-kind,  that you will not be able to resist  and some pottery videos for your education and entertainment.

You may also purchase pottery by JCR Designs  at the Guild’s on-line store at: www.southernhighlandguild.org  or visit any of the galleries listed on my gallery page. They are all currently open.
