Artist Statement/Bio (from website)
“Located in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, historic Harpers Ferry has been the home of Westwind Potters for 24 years. A great day trip, equal distance from Gettysburg, PA, Baltimore, MD, and our nation’s capitol, Washington, D.C. Craft enthusiasts trek to Westwind Potters for the high quality, affordable, all American-made products.
For over two decades, emphasis has been placed on pottery, since that was the humble beginnings of Westwind in 1983. Since then, our late founders dream of a simple pottery studio has evolved into a nationally-known craft retailer. Our shop has now expanded to showcase 52 artists from 28 states. Their handiworks include pottery, baskets, carved utensils, candles and an “in-house” stained glass studio.”
