While the bulk of Mr. Tessem’s pottery is functional stoneware, ranging from teapots and casseroles, to full sets of dinnerware and drinking vessels, he is also an accomplished raku potter, produces porcelain and wood-fired pots, and more recently, crystalline pottery.
Prancing Pony Pottery focuses on creating wheel-thrown and hand-built stoneware that can be enjoyed every day. Each piece of pottery is individually crafted, fired, and then glazed by potter Anna Marie Torre Wright in her Richardsville, Virginia, studio. Since each piece of Prancing Pony Pottery is hand-made by the artisan, your item will be a one-of-a-kind piece of pottery that you can use and enjoy every day!
