Whiskey Mountain Pottery
Add to Trip

David Bridge’s passion for making pottery began in 2008 while he was living in Mint Hill, NC. There he helped to launch a non-profit group supporting potters. When the right property with mountain views and proximity to downtown West Jefferson hit the market, David and his wife jumped on it. Drawn to the area for its beauty and its fly fishing, David repurposed his barn to create a pottery studio, Whiskey Mountain Pottery.

Whiskey Mountain Pottery welcomes visitors to chat with David, see custom orders waiting for his distinct glazes, and watch his newest works taking form underneath his hands. His pieces are mostly functional. Many are turned on the wheel while other pieces use a hand roller and extruder. David’s glazes are inspired by the Han Dynasty pottery from China, dating back from 206 BC to 220 AD. During this time, potters developed glazes that enabled them to mimic the color and surface of their sacred jade, celadon in color. David also makes bowls to support Empty Bowls programs and produces limited runs of custom items for various other businesses. Whiskey Mountain Pottery is available for purchase on-site.
