How It's Done

Sycamore Pottery

Ren and Pam Parziale have been making their award winning pottery in Leetown, West Virginia since the early 1970’s. Their wheel thrown stoneware pots are known for the quality of workmanship and design. Each pot is shaped by hand, "thrown" on the potter’s wheel, then individually decorated and glazed before being fired in the kiln.

"Our pots are nearly perfect and almost alike," laughs Ren Parziale.

Sycamore Pottery is well known throughout the area for the many pots, pitchers, and bowls made for the National Park Service, Historic Shepherdstown, Camp Frame and other cultural and civic organizations. The Parziale’s work was recently recognized with an Award of Distinction by the Eastern Panhandle Heritage Craft Center Pottery Exhibition, Martinsburg. Their work has been exhibited at Stifel Fine Arts Center in Wheeling WV, and Washington County Museum, Hagerstown, MD.

"The most useful pots in a cook’s kitchen are the batter bowls and mixing bowls," says Pam. Leaping fish, flowers, and swooping brushwork enhance a colorful selection of glazes, butternut, celadon, soft gray and blue.

Upcoming Events:

One of the finest festivals on the east coast, the 40th annual Mountain Heritage Arts & Crafts Spring Festival takes place near historic Harpers Ferry WV. Ren and Pam will be in Tent 3.
