Miller’s Pottery

Dallas County

Pottery

Francis Lacoste came from France on ship to Mobile Bay in the early 1800s. His daughter married Abraham Miller and the pottery moved north by horse and wagon in the 1880s to its present location in central Alabama. This is where the 5th and 6th generation craftsmen still carry on this old fashion method of producing wheel thrown stoneware pottery. Every piece is a collectible, one of a kind.

The Miller family pottery history has been documented on film, in book, magazines and newspapers. The family has also demonstrated their craft in several shows including the American Folk Festival at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D. C., the Alabama Clay Conference, and in gallery exhibits.

Allen Ham is a sixth generation potter and the youngest member of the Ham-Miller family of potters. He was trained mainly in his grandfather, Hendon Miller’s shop in Brent and was one of the primary turners at Miller Pottery after Hendon’s death.

Often using ash glaze clay from Perry County, each piece is made by hand as it has been for 6 generations with the same local clay source. Products are microwave, conventional oven and dishwasher safe.
