George Scatchard came to Vermont in 1960 to set up his first pottery shop and has been working with clay ever since. This artisan potter taught ceramics at the University of Vermont while continuing to create pottery in his own rural studio. He has specialized in making lamps.
The proprietary mix of clay and custom glazes that George has developed through years of experimentation, in combination with the high fire reduction process, create a highly durable and beautiful stoneware product. His lamp bases are simple, attractive and timeless.
In 2012 Scatchard Stoneware was acquired by American Lighting Brands and moved to the House of Troy factory in Hyde Park VT. A state of the art kiln was installed on the premises and firing began. Our current in-house potters have mastered the art of slip-casting and have successfully taken over the helm from George Scatchard.
