Popcorn Studio Pottery is a family pottery started in 1979 in Murfreesboro, the geographic center of Tennessee. We've dedicated ourselves to designing and hand crafting stoneware pottery that reflects our goals of preserving the traditions of the past while making functional pottery that is beautiful, contemporary and meant to be used on a daily basis.
While every piece we make shares the same level of quality, each one is also individually created by hand so that no two are exactly alike.
Our handmade pottery is tough, durable stoneware that has been fired to a temperature of 2400°. Our stoneware pottery is food safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and meant to be used on a daily basis. Our stoneware ovenware pottery is durable and safe for normal oven use. We recommend that you not preheat your oven before using. See our FAQ page to learn more.
If you're here, exploring our website, it's probably because you love handmade pottery and already know that a piece we may call a "Dinner Plate" can also be used as a serving tray, a dresser tray to hold your perfume, or a piece you keep on a table to catch your mail and car keys. We may make the clay and glazes, throw or hand form the pots, glaze and fire them, but they're not completely finished until they are being used and enjoyed by pottery lovers like you (or the people you are nice enough to give them to).
