Front Avenue Pottery & Tile Co.
~Front Avenue Pottery & Tile, established 2001, designs and creates fine crafted, high quality, playfully decorative dinner and
serving ware and clay tile. A BFA graduate from the University of Minnesota, artist & potter, Mary Jo Schmith, was undoubtedly influenced by
Warren MacKenzie & Mark Pharis and their commitment to functional pottery. Now with 20 years of clay production experience
she works daily to produce inspired functional fine craft for your table, kitchen & home.
~“Working with clay enables me to craft works of art that function in the
every day; in our kitchen, on our table, held in our hands, used hundreds of
times with family and friends. They are to be used in and to illuminate the
endless silly or serious cycles of life that surround and consume us every single day!”~
