Jan Pugh has had a lifelong passion for pottery. After completion of art school in 1979, Jan returned to her hometown of Genoa, Ohio, to set up a studio. This was the beginning of Jan's signature style and the start of Packer Creek Pottery. The business quickly outgrew its tiny one room studio into its current multi-building complex located in charming downtown Genoa. Over its many years in business, Jan has trained many skilled artisans in her technique and majolica pottery. The dedication to quality and the unique, whimsical, and colorful designs are a tradition that will continue on at Packer Creek Pottery.
