Jon & Jan Brieger
The Brieger’s have been potters for over 20 years producing functional and decorative stoneware pottery for the home and garden. Jon does all of the throwing, Jan the hand-building and they work together on the glazing and firing. All of the work is fired to 2400F in a 80 cu.ft. downdraft propane fueled kiln. Soda ash is introduced into the kiln at the end of the firing. This produces random flashing on the exterior of the pots which are mainly left unglazed. Most pots are made from a native Texas clay which is nicely responsive to this technique. The Brieger's live in Blanco Co. Texas in a stone home and studio which they built. Jon and Jan also have a retail shop on the courthouse square in Blanco,Texas. Shop hours are Mon-Thur. 10:00-5:00 / Fri & Sat 10:00-8:00 / Sun 11:00-5:00.
