Jobi Pottery is a Truro cottage industry that was begun in 1953 by original owners Joe Colliano and Bill Hastings. Today, owner/designer Susan Kurtzman still uses the original mid-century casting molds to create Jobi Pottery in her Truro studio. Join Susan Kurtzman for a free, one-hour presentation on the history and techniques behind Jobi Pottery at 7 PM, Tuesday, July 10, at Salt Pond Visitor Center.Pieces of Jobi Pottery will be on display and available for sale.
Although Jobi Pottery has changed hands since it began in 1953, Kurtzman still maintains the retro look and bright colors that have been a signature of the company from the beginning.She is committed to keeping the business local and the pieces handmade.Every piece is created, painted, and fired in a barn adjacent to an 1830s farmhouse in North Truro.Jobi Pottery has been featured in Boston Globe Magazine, and Coastal Living Magazine, and was named the Best of Outer Cape Arts and Crafts by Cape Cod Life.
