Bruce and Janice Latham are the owners and operators of Latham"s Pottery which they founded in April of 1992 in a building next to their home on Alternate 220. Pottery ran in the family since 1800's on Bruce's grandmother's (Luck's) side. Bruce and Janice took pottery up as a hobby, never going to school but determined to be self taught. They opened their shop full time in 1993 and really love turning pottery.

Items they hand turn range from coffee mugs, pie plates, large vases to miniatures, dinnerware, honey jars, candle cups of many styles, lotion bottles, toothbrush holders, canister sets, large and small casseroles, and just a lot more. Their specialty is a hand turned basket with hand made flowers on top and both sides. They always special sign that piece with Bruce's full name which has become his trademark piece. Colors range from colbalt blue,light blue with lace, med blue that breaks brown on the edges,deep burgandy, dark green, purple, white with burgandy, green, or blue trim. Spongeware in rose, rose and green, green and blue. All the pottery incorporates lead free glazes and all pieces are hand turned.
