Door Pottery

Inspired by the integrity of the Arts and Crafts Movement that swept America and Europe between 1880 and 1920, potter Scott Draves decided to open his Door Pottery studio in Madison, Wisconsin in 2001. Prior to starting Door Pottery, Scott was co-founder of Ephraim Pottery. Draves wanted his pottery to reflect his ideals of high-quality, creative expression rather than churned-out, large quantities of mass-produced, impersonal pieces. With that dedication to excellence, Door Pottery was born.

Door Pottery hails back not only to the aesthetic designs of the Arts and Crafts period, but also acknowledges design elements from the Movements fringe edges: Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Prairie School design periods. Arts and Crafts elements incorporated onto Door Pottery pieces include bats, Gingko, poppy and dragonfly motifs and other nature designs. Vessels are in the shapes of classical, architectural or organic forms.

Door Pottery pieces are available in three types of crystalline Faience glazes and available in several different color variations of the type of glaze applied. Blended glazes incorporate two colors carefully graduated across the vessel. Solid glazes have a primary color accentuated with subtle, complementary hues that create highlights. Mottled glazes create textured surfaces. Draves continually experiments with new glazes and his most recent glaze is called Granny Smith Green in reference to the color of green apples.

Each piece of Door Pottery is an individual piece of art decorated by hand. Older pieces are marked with maker's marks and artist signatures. Artists who worked on earlier Door Pottery include Richard Ritzlaff, John Tiller and Nicky Ross who were also involved with the Door Pottery Studio Line. Since 2016, Door Pottery simplified its organization and now owner/potter Scott Draves is the sole producer of Door Pottery and designs, throws and glazes each piece. Draves' hands-on approach ensures each vessel is a unique piece of art issued in low numbers.
