All of our beautiful pottery is created and painted in Bedford, Virginia and is the original source of inspiration for the Pottery Shop and Tearoom that you enjoy today. This family owned company began in 1977 and has been producing functional pottery pieces ever since. Each piece is an authentic original as there is not a template or stencil used in the process. There is an Emerson Creek pottery piece for almost every use in your home!

 

In our Pottery Shop you will find dinnerware, coffee and tea mugs, bakeware, serving dishes, bathroom accessories, and more! There are 14 patterns currently available.  All the pottery is lead free, and can be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. Come on in and check out our full line of Brie bakers. This is the ideal pottery bakeware for baking casseroles or desserts.

Emerson Creek Cookbook

Emerson Creek is a uniquely heirloom variety, and so it is the intent of its’ owners to provide an opportunity to return to tradition, and share this beautiful segment of countryside with others. It is a welcoming place to share experiences- it took 10 years, in the life of our Tearoom, to be able to share these recipes. It is with gratitude to extend our beautiful grounds, and now some of our wholesome, delectable recipes with you in our Emerson Creek Cookbook.
