the Buck Pottery web site. We sincerely thank you for your interest
in our traditional handmade pottery.
Buck Pottery was established in 1982 by Terry and Dee Buck, on the
banks of the beautiful Guadalupe River in Gruene Texas, four miles
north of New Braunfels in the heart of the scenic Texas Hill Country.
Our workshop and gallery are housed in an 1870’s barn, once
used to store supplies for the general mercantile store in this
early German, cotton-farming town.
The style of our pottery is the culmination of nearly thirty years
of being full time potters. All of our pottery is designed and produced
under our careful direction. We use Texas clay, employing several
local slip clays and wood ash for many of our glazes. The clay is
formed on a potter’s wheel or “hand built” out
of slabs or coils. It is then fired in wood and gas fueled kilns.
The exterior surface of the pottery is enhanced in the firing by
the fly ash from the wood-burning kiln or from the soda vapor of
the gas fired kiln. All of the pottery is oven, dishwasher and microwave
safe and contains no lead.
We invite you to visit our workshop and gallery. The gallery hours
are 10-6 Monday-Saturday and 11-5 on Sunday.
While visiting Gruene you may want to have lunch or dinner in one
of the many local restaurants, shop in the unique stores or listen
to great live music at Gruene
Hall, Texas’ oldest dance hall.
