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 12-18 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.


We had record-breaking sales  at the Southern Highlands Craft Guild’s 4-day July show! Thank you to all of   our “prestigious pottery collectors” and a special shout out to the “Cottage Girls” who will keep us in the wreath business with your enthusiasm and positive energy.
