Tom Jones Blue Coffee Mug
Tom Jones grew up in Fairhope, Alabama and became interested in pottery in high school when he studied under master potter Edith Harwell. After graduating he was offered a scholarship from Mississippi College in Clinton, Mississippi.
In 1976, Tom helped Ralph Jennings start A & D Pottery on the site of the current pottery. In 1980, Tom and his wife Pam opened their first shop in Daphne, Alabama. The pottery was manufactured from their home until more space was needed. In 1983, Tom moved all of his equipment and tools back to the site of the present location of the pottery at Clay City.
