John McCormack first found his passion for pottery during a high school ceramics class in Williamsburg, VA. But it wasn't until a wheel throwing class his last semester at CNU that he decided to pursue clay as career. An apprenticeship in Frisco, NC was a spring board to starting Acorn Pottery in 2004. It has been a fun journey as the pottery has grown, much like an acorn does from a small seed in to a tree. Acorn Pottery is a family business. John, his wife, and three boys currently make pots out of their Spotsylvania, VA studio.
