Did you know that Scott Draves was one of the founders of Ephraim Pottery? Ephraim Pottery was and still is a wonderful art pottery that Scott Draves had the privilege to be associated with. However, because of artistic and business differences, he sold his half of the business in 2001 to pursue his own own style of Arts and Crafts pottery. Scott needed a smaller pottery with a more hands on role including teaching the Arts and Crafts style to students that had an interest in it. In 2001 Door Pottery was created and in 2004 Scott Draves purchased the teaching facility and one of the largest high fire kilns in Madison, WI. Door Pottery now consists of a small staff that throw, decorate, press tile, and in most cases teach.
SCOTT DRAVES MISSION:
My mission statement follows the lines of the old Arts and Crafts movement, where production was not the key, but creativity and handmade quality were. Much like the potteries of the past, the most desirable and collectible pieces were made in small studios such as Grueby and Overbeck. My goal is to recreate that small studio creativity and connectedness by being involved in the creation of each piece of quality handmade art that leaves my studio.
