Hickory Hill Pottery was established in 1985 by potter Daniel
Marley. Being a first generation potter, Marley became interested
in the production of pottery while visiting nearby Westmoore
Pottery after school. One thing led to another and before long
Marley was serving a one year apprenticeship with Westmoore
Pottery. While working there, Marley received a grant from the
National Endowment for the Arts to study the rich tradition and
techniques of the Seagrove area potteries. It was here that he
found his life's calling. In 1989, Daniel married Leanna Davis.
Together they are committed to keeping the pottery tradition
alive. Many of the shapes they produce today reflect traditional
shapes of the area. The Marleys specialize in utilitarian wares.
They produce a vast array of baking dishes, serving pieces, and
dinnerware. All of their glazes are lead-free and developed by
them for their specific use.
