George Dalton

For more than thirty years I have been creating fine stoneware pottery and teaching others with a passion for this craft as well> Each piece is one of a kind and hand thrown on the potter's wheel. My product line includes a variety of both functional and decorative ware such as vases, pitchers, baking dishes, mugs, bowls, and covered jars which are decorated with brilliant pastel (high-fire) glazes and slips. All my ware is high-fired to 2,000 degrees so it ovenproof, microwave, and dishwasher safe. Some measurements may vary due to the handmade quality. These pieces are truly appealing for their versatility as a compliment to home decor or for functional kitchen use in food preparation, baking, and storage. I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I enjoyed making them. Custom orders are always welcome!! - Dalton Pottery

George grew up on the cape and graduated from Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School in 1967. From there he found himself in Detroit with his two sisters Barbara Dalton and Judy Rossman. Out in Detroit they ran a successful gallery and did many craft shows before George made his way back to New England.

George was an educator in Brockton from ‘86 -’93 and taught ceramics at the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset and the Duxbury Art Center. After shifting gears back to pottery full time he ran a store in Falmouth called Dalton Pottery in Falmouth for over 14 years where he sold his work.

George is now in his 70s and still very involved in working with clay and says turning a lump of clay into a piece of pottery is a magical process. His pieces include a variety of decorative and functional stoneware with uniquely made glazes.
