Welcome to JustArtPottery.com. We are Greg and Lana Myroth. We started Just Art Pottery in May of 1997 to provide a convenient and safe way for collectors ranging from entry level to highly advanced to find accurately described and fairly priced art pottery. What started as a hobby of collecting Van Briggle pottery quickly grew into a small and thriving business of buying and selling art pottery across the world.
We truly appreciate your business and fully guarantee your satisfaction with every item you purchase from us. We pride ourselves in the accuracy of our descriptions and strive to in all cases mention even the most minor flaws in the pottery we sell in order to ensure your highest expectations are met.
We have enjoyed meeting so many of our customers over the years both face to face and online and we love talking pottery. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
Greg does all the buying and overall management of the business including all marketing and business development activities. Even though we sell over 3,000 pieces of art pottery each year, Greg personally inspects most pieces before they are listed on the JustArtPottery.com website. Greg is a trustee of the American Art Pottery Association. He has spoken at multiple conferences and authored articles on various topics related to buying, selling and collecting American art pottery.
Lana provides the day to day management of the business and scheduling and coordinating related business activities. She also spends a fair amount of time speaking with customers as well as setting up and scheduling pottery buying trips and deliveries.
Sue handles all the shipping and receiving for Just Art Pottery. She also processes a large majority of the incoming inventory. Sue is the one who regularly is receiving letters and emails of praise for her superior packing skills.
Maggie is responsible for much of the daily administrative functions of our business. She handles most of the daily email correspondence as well as talking to customers and processing phone orders. Maggie also handles much of our inventory management throughout our buying and selling processes.
Renea has been with Just Art Pottery since 2008 and is our resident photography expert. Since 2008, basically every photo on our website has been taken by Renea. She is dedicated to her art and always strives to get quality, accurate photos of our art pottery.
Taylor is responsible for our accounting and assists with other office functions. She still will make an occasional buying trip with Dad when her schedule allows.
Jordan is our licensed auctioneer and runs our internet auctions. She also helps with receiving and cleaning inventory and supports Maggie with inventory management. Jordan also makes a few buying trips with Mom and Dad when she is home from college.
Ethan enjoys helping with pottery receiving and cleaning. He will tell you that the cleaning part is his least favorite responsibility. He can often be found assisting Renea with photography. Ethan also does a great job loading and unloading inventory that is coming and going.
Bubba is the JustArtPottery.com mascot and has been a great addition to the team since we picked him up from the local humane society a few years ago. He is a great dog and loyal companion. He loves his long walks with Greg. He's never met a person he doesn't like as long as you don't mess with Ethan.
Oliver is the long standing Myroth family cat. His claim to fame is his uncanny ability to frustrate Greg while climbing on desks and in and out of shelves of pottery while never breaking a single piece.
