Co-op Stoneware Since 1948: Bennington Potters in Bennington, Vermont

Julie Carlson February 02, 2016

Founded by David Gil in 1948, Bennington Potters started as an artists’ cooperative in a small, unheated barn before moving to a four-and-a-half-acre site in 1964. Gil, a graduate of the ceramics program at Alfred University, aimed to create functional, affordable handmade stoneware for everyday use; his designs have a pleasing heft (not too heavy, not too fragile) and are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and glazes; for ordering information, go to Bennington Potters.
