Jack Donohue of Nutmeg Potters

Jack was a gardener long before he was a potter. This is reflected in his making many varied flower pots from long toms to planters. He also has an appreciation for Art Deco pottery and this can be seen in the multiple vases he makes. He throws with an iron rich clay that glaze fires to a rich, dark brown bordering on black. Lately he's been using porcelain and making pinch pots. The clay is stretched to cracking. Oxides and glazes are rubbed into the cracks. The interior is glazed with a color and clear is used on the exterior. 

Kathy and Jack take hand building classes at IS 183 in Stockbridge MA with Paula Shalan.
