To create your own masterpiece one has to pick their pottery piece from a selection of locally made pots. Painting comes next with the use of various glazes and art materials the studio would readily provide. To be a perfect piece it has to be fired up in a kiln with a temperature of 1800 degrees. The fun part comes where you can finally see your creative output. Finally, a functional pot is made that is guaranteed to be dishwasher, microwave, and food safe.

Tested By Fire Pottery, Inc. has a wonderful collection of pottery that would surely complement the beauty of your residence. It can be found close to the tip of the Huntress Ln. in San Antonio operating from 10 am to 5 pm from Monday to Friday. Rob, the owner, started his pottery adventure in 1975. It was about 40 years ago that he immersed himself with pottery and yet he still has the same passion for the craft. He wants people to feel how it’s like to have the texture of clay molded in your own hand with the aid of the wheel.

“Just got some of Rob’s pottery for Christmas, and I absolutely love it. The large mugs are so beautiful and there is a thumb divot, which I love. The soup bowls are large and so extremely beautiful. I love each piece so much!” –Ashley Stephens

“I love bringing my 8 yr old daughter here to paint together, but I also love coming when the kids are in school and painting in peace & quiet. It honestly is very relaxing. It took a while to paint this doxie flower pot, but I loved every minute of it.” –June Duke
Just Pots’ founding was influenced by the family owner’s love for exquisite pottery pieces. They used to collect pots of various colors and styles but then came a day that triggered the establishment of Just Pots. Unhappy with the inability to find the perfect pottery piece they want that time, this inspired them to open their own pottery shop. It is a store that carries a wide assortment of pottery items that suit the indoor areas and outdoor spaces perfectly. They made sure to stock up various sizes, colors, and shapes of frost-proof Vietnamese glazed and terra cotta pottery.
