Jerry and Shirley HUFT
PIG PEN POTTERY
Pig Pen Pottery was established in what was once the farrowing shed inhabited by Jerry and Shirley Huft's pet
sow, Annabelle. Tiny piglets were soon replaced by pottery wheels, a kiln, and an entirely different type of clutter.
When they moved to Grants Pass, Oregon, over two years ago, they happily created a new pleasant, practical studio
space, but kept the name as a reminder of their roots.
Shirley began her career as a high school painting and drawing and pottery teacher. Jerry joined her in college
pottery classes and soon discovered an affinity and love of clay. Between them, they make a wide range of functional
pottery, working and building on each other's ideas. Along with traditional platters, bowls, candlesticks and a
myriad of other functional pieces, they have added fish, pig and horse bowls in a wide range of sizes and colors.
