POTTERY HISTORY: Lee and Pup McCarty began making pottery in 1954 concentrating on both artistic and functional pieces. Platters, casserole dishes, lamps, hanging planters, dinnerware and a large variety of sculptures are among pieces adorning homes across Mississippi, the United States, and the world.

The McCartys unique style, focuses on simple yet elegant, which makes these pieces so unique and collectable. Another reason their unique pottery is so popular is the glazes resulting in a wide variety of native clays and glazes resulting in a wide variety of colors.

By the 1970’s, they had invented their signature glazes of nutmeg, cobalt, and jade. McCartys pottery can be identified by the trademarked “river”, a small black wavy line representing the Mississippi River on most functional pieces, and by the trademarked McCartys signature which is hand signed on the bottom or back of each piece. Lee and Pup have come a long way since William Faulkner showed them a clay deposit in a ravine on his property and told them could have it. In the early days, they insulated the Barn with cardboard, froze in the winter, sweated in the summer, and persevered. With their artistic vision and incredible work ethic, McCartys Pottery has become known around the world.
