If you have visited Colorado Springs and its historic district, Old Colorado City, there is a good chance you know the name of local potter Tony Heslop.  Tony is the preeminent potter known by thousands of collectors of his clayware.

For almost 40 years he sold his work year-round in Colorado Springs. You can find Tony Heslop’s pottery year-round at Hunter-Wolff Gallery, 2510 W. Colorado Avenue.

We love working with Tony because of his philosophy and work ethics. He wants anyone who appreciates pottery to be able to purchase his work because it is affordable.  Affordability is as important to him as the right design and glaze color.  This has been his mantra for decades.  “Make it well; make it affordable.” And, we add, “Buy Made In America!”

If you are looking for durability and functionality when preparing and serving food, think about hand-crafted pottery for these tasks. His vases and one-of-a-kind vessels can enhance a room, table top or shelf. His functional clayware pleases anyone with cooking skills, and his decorative Raku designs are unique and stunning for a mantel or on the floor.  You decide.

Come explore Tony Heslop’s pottery and check Hunter-Wolff Gallery’s website but be sure to call to see if something slipped in the door before it was posted on his webpage.  We receive new work from Tony every week and it finds its way to kitchens and homes across America quickly.

We ship Tony Heslop pottery everywhere in the US.  If you find something for a gift, call 719-520-9494 to get your order shipped in time for special event.

TIP:  Tony  Heslop Seconds Sales happens once a year.  Mark Your Calendar for January 24, 2015 and get on our mailing list.

TH1259traycup_tn TH-Red_tn TH1395_tn TH_oil cruets_tnComfort food–the ultimate hug for the soul this time of year! Even though Hunter-Wolff Gallery doesn’t sell comfort food, you can find Colorado-made pottery for serving your favorite meals for that ultimate hug. Tony Heslop, a fine potter in Colorado Springs, creates an array of colorful, practical tableware for everyday living. Everyday doesn’t mean not special!

Tony’s “pots” are a feast for the eyes and when you add your own home-cooked recipes, it is a combo your family and guests will come back for more. There is nothing like filling the kitchen with the smell of home baked bread and pastries and a bubbling treat on the stove or crock-pot and serving it up on beautiful clayware.

Fans have been collecting Tony’s work for nearly 40 years and several generations of cooks keep adding pieces to their own collections and for gifts. Each year he adds new designs, colors and shapes and his work continues to evolve to keep the kitchen kings and queens happy. His glazes are food safe and kitchen-friendly because they work in the microwave, dishwasher and oven. If you like adding a bottle wine to the table, check out his wine chiller. Place it in the freezer for a few hours and then on the table and your white wine and champagne will stay chilled throughout the meal, and they are so affordable, you might add several to the table.

When you are looking for a wedding, anniversary, or shower gifts, and have a modest budget, consider finding something special from the Tony Heslop pottery collection. We know the gift will be welcomed and cherished for years to come.

Buy local. Buy American. Buy treasures for a lifetime.

Robyn & Curt Elliot Raku

When you say “pottery” is art, most people respond with a look that says, “Have you lost your marbles?”

It is one of the oldest forms of art dating back to prehistoric times and it is here to stay.  Some of the nicest Raku pottery coming onto the market today is by Robyn and Curt Elliott.  For 35 years they have been working with clay and today are devoting all their time perfecting glazes and pushing the envelope with intricate designs and details.

The Elliotts have taken Raku to the next level . We’d like to hear your response to their newest work which just arrived in our gallery and likely will not be here for long. The designs, forms and glazes are outstanding. Each piece begs to be touched and admired.
