Puz­zle Creek Pot­tery con­sists of John and Donna King.

John’s work cur­rently involves heav­ily carved and tex­tured sur­faces on what are essen­tially tra­di­tional shapes. For the most part, these pieces are both func­tional as well as dec­o­ra­tive. Many of his works are depic­tions of ani­mal life and become less func­tional as they become more sculp­tural. Puz­zle Creek Pot­tery par­tic­i­pates in sev­eral regional show/​sales through­out the year.

Donna’s work involves small sculp­tures depict­ing wildlife, often with the young in their home envi­ron­ment. She strives to be authen­tic when carv­ing and paint­ing each piece. Her sub­jects range from small mam­mals to birds with an occa­sional whim­si­cal some­thing thrown in. Look closely at Donna’s work and you will find the tini­est details; from small insects to the lichen on stumps.

Today John and Donna live in rural Ruther­ford County where he is employed as an instruc­tor at his daugh­ter Kiowa’s teach­ing stu­dio, Good Earth Pot­tery Stu­dio. He and Donna also main­tain a gallery at their home. They feel that their great­est reward as pot­ters is the appre­ci­a­tion that oth­ers have for their work. That appre­ci­a­tion con­tin­ues to sur­prise and inspire them.
