Check back periodically for updates, as events are subject to change.

Representing unique wares for you to take home, straight from the mountains of North Carolina. All wares are food, microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe.
TFara Pottery is currently featured at Hanging Rock General Store and Gallery.
Tony Farrar, the potter behind the wheel, is currently a Stokes County and Hanging Rock Community resident in North Carolina. His roots stem from Nelson County, VA. He graduated from Ferrum College with a Fine Arts degree. Tony is seasoned in the potter community having studied with Master potter Chip McKinney at Fingers Inc. in Roanoke, Va, as well as the inspirational guidance of Master potter Dave Gardner of North Carolina. He also studied glaze calculations with Warren Moyer at the Sawtooth Center in Winston-Salem, as well as glaze formulations with John Britt.
Farrar states “My work is solely an inspiration from nature. There is a spirituality in taking clay or a piece of earth to make vessels and forms for usage – it's a connection. Motivation to create is two handed – one is guided with your mind and the other is with your heart. Molding clay into vessels is hard and physical work, however it is very rewarding. It teaches one patience and is an expression of free-form.”
He further states, “Developing and making of one's own glazes requires testing and adjustments to acquire a quality result. I like to focus on a pleasing form and quality rather then quantity, and more on the factors that satisfy people who enjoy an intimate experience when using my wares.” Tony also added “When one places a mug to their mouth, it must feel right, to be able to enjoy the experience of holding the mug and drinking from it".
