Ceramic Artist Justin Allman

Exclusive modern ceramics and pottery for sale

Ceramic artist Justin Allman begins with simple textures and basic shapes — and then turns to his beloved Blue Ridge range of the Appalachian Mountains for visual guidance. Justin designs and creates each piece of pottery art to explore the concept of unfulfilled dreams. Many reflect the struggle for balance to reclaim those visions. Each unique vessel represents life — and how full and fulfilled you choose to make it.

East Meets West

in the Cashiers Ceramic Art Movement

Japanese woodcuts and tattoos can represent everything from graceful movement and a natural setting to personal achievement, conflict and an emotional instant caught in an artistic design. Ceramic artist Justin Allman incorporates that style into his exceptionally beautiful pottery for sale.

Japanese pottery art — from 1550 AD to modern times — closely resembles modern North Carolina ceramic art. Both geographic origins share a close resemblance, a similar climate, a sordid past and a majestic setting cloaked in mystery. This is what draws Justin, as a ceramic artist, to both cultures. He mixes the two styles and adds his own personal interpretation and creativity. Justin incorporates his own search for balance and self-fulfillment into a unique pottery style that you won’t easily find elsewhere, such as when you search for “pottery shops near me.”

Electric and Gas Fired Pottery for Sale

Ceramic artist Justin Allman relies on hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques to create the variety of pieces you can find in his Cashiers studio. While following his creative visions, he creates ceramic art that stands on its own as visual, textural art for art’s sake. He also fashions: mugs, plates, and vases.

HIS TRAINING

Justin is trained in running kilns, making glazes and operating most machinery used in the production of quality pottery for sale. He makes everything from the wadding to the cone packs. Each piece of his modern ceramics is one of a kind. Colors in the ceramic artist’s studio reflect his inner visions, as well as the shades of earth in his surrounding community high in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

HIS INFLUENCES

You’ll experience first-hand the different influences in the pottery for sale. Glazes and finishes play a role in the final vision and its intended significance. Justin doesn’t just make cups and pots; he creates vessels through which you can explore the roots of your dreams. The ceramic art that comes from the wood fire train kiln — built from reclaimed bricks and metal — will draw your thoughts to the history behind the ancient Eastern hills and in the more rugged West.
