Rebecca Plummer and Jon Ellenbogen make stoneware pottery intended for daily use in the home.

All ingredients are naturally occurring minerals mined in the eastern United States. They employ glazes made exclusively at their studio, having been developed after many years' research. No toxic materials are used in the clay or glazes. The pottery is fired to nearly 2400 degrees F, a temperature well above the melting point of many metals.

Rebecca and Jon have been working together as Barking Spider Pottery for over forty years. Their passive solar studio and home is built above the Toe River in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
