Dock 6 Pottery
In 1995, Dock 6 was a group of just four potters sharing space and expenses. Because the original studio could only be entered from a loading dock (number 6, to be exact), the potters aptly agreed to name themselves Dock 6 Pottery. Since then, the studio has moved several times and the four potters have gone their separate ways, but the name has stuck. These days, Dock 6 employs between 30 and 40 people at any given time, consists of a gallery, classroom, and 9,000 square foot production studio, and sells to more than 1,000 merchants all over the US.
