Named after a small stream that winds its way through the village of Genoa, Ohio, Packer Creek Pottery had grown to become a local landmark! Founded in 1980, in a one room cramped to studio, the business now has three showrooms with shelves full of whimsical, and fully functional pottery!
Jan Pugh is proud to be able to provide her customers with a unique hand-made product, produced in America by skilled and dedicated artists. We welcome you to to browse our online collection. With such an extensive collection of pottery it is almost impossible for us to put everything online! We invite one and all to visit our showroom and get the personal service from our knowledgeable staff. Want to add to your collection, or start a new one? Give us a call at (419) 855-3858 and we would be more than happy to help you!
Thank you so much for all your support over the years and we hope to continue to provide smiles, and color to your life!
Majolica is a soft earthenware clay, fired to bisque or unglazed stage at approximately 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. This "biscuit" or bisque is then dipped in an opaque white glaze. Later, when this has dried, the brightly colored stains are added on top of this first glaze coating. After being fired for the second time at 1800 degrees, the opaque white glaze and the stains painted on interact in the kiln to create the deep and brilliant translucent color specific to majolica. It is this glaze, the tremendous variety of whimsical forms, and the intense colors of majolica that make this ceramic stand apart from other wares and delight collectors.
