"When I first drove over the crest of the hill in 1976, I saw an old vacant general store nestled on the banks of the St. John River. My visceral reaction was, "this is the right place". Greig Pottery was born in that year with one potter, one wheel, and one kiln.
Many changes have taken place over the past decades: new ideas, shapes and patterns all with the same standard of innovation and high quality.
The influence of the St. John River and the many local apple orchards have been the inspiration for the apple motif which has become synonymous with the name Greig Pottery. Over the years we have expanded our patterns and colours to include the Lupin, Periwinkle Blue, Frannie Green, Buttercup Yellow, Pattison Collage, Spring Green Collage and the Fiddlehead motif. We are careful to maintain our original patterns so that collectors can purchase additional pieces, as their budget permits.
2020 marked our 44th year in business and still feeling inspired. Our longevity and success is due in large part to those many loyal customers (friends) who use and enjoy handmade pottery in their daily lives. The Village of Gagetown is a beautiful, rich and supportive environment for craftspeople and I am fortunate to have discovered this gem in 1976."
