Welcome to Floyds Fork Pottery
My name is Anthony L. Hayes and I’m a self taught artist from Fairdale, Kentucky having never gone to school for pottery.
Having never touched clay until January 15th 2006, when I did I found what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. As a child growing up outdoors in the country, I was involved in hunting, fishing, frogging and snake chasing. These experiences are reflected in my work.
Over the years, I have developed an appreciation antiques and stoneware. It is this appreciation that motivates me to turn clay into something I’ve already loved. Folk potters J.H. Miller, B B Craig, and Anna Pottery have given me the inspiration and desire to create the type of pottery that I do, with my own special touch. I hope to leave a legacy through my own work for other people to gather up one day.
