New Salem Pottery

Celebrating 45 Years




Original Designs


  • Established in 1972, New Salem Pottery is owned and operated by Hal Pugh and Eleanor Minnock-Pugh. Hal and Eleanor produce a variety of original redware and stoneware pottery. Years of work at the wheel and the subtle evolutionary convergence of originality with past traditions make their pottery recognizable by its own style. The slip decorated redware pitcher shown above is illustrative of their art.
  • The Pughs also replicate redware and stoneware pottery from the sixteenth through the twentieth century. Their expertise facilitates a specialization in the reproduction of eighteenth and nineteenth century slip decorated and plain redware. Working as consultants to archaeologists, historians, and set decorators concerning historic ceramic techniques and processes, their pottery has been displayed and used by universities, historic sites, the movie industry, and living history museums throughout the United States and abroad.
