Meet the Potter

Home Dan Waters began his vocation as a full-time potter artisan in 1994. In his prior career, before moving to the Outer Banks of North Carolina from Maryland, Dan was a successful stone mason. His art is inspired by nature. From fish spoon rests to whale tail wine corks, the Outer Banks has had a profound influence on his life and work. Self taught, he makes pottery that is both fun and functional. He has experimented with ceramic glazes to achieve the colors he wanted to reflect nature. All of Dan's glazes are lead free, dinnerware safe, and can be used in the oven or microwave. The stoneware fired at temperatures over 2200 degrees F. produces very durable pottery. He feels fortunate that he has found his vocation and livelihood as a potter and says, "Its the best job I've ever had." Dan gladly shares his knowledge with others by teaching classes and just talking about pottery.

Dan hopes the enjoyment he gets from making pottery is passed on to you.
