Leonard McEwen began working in folk pottery late in his career as a custom home builder in the West Georgia area. He donated thousands of his early works to the Carroll County Empty Bowls organization, and community interest in his work led him to begin to sell his decorative functional stoneware.
Leonard puts equal work into making certain that his strictly one-of-a-kind creations look amazing and work well in the kitchen. He has devoted years to perfecting his single firing and multiple resist technique to produce visually arresting colors.
For the last decade-plus, Leonard has partnered with his former student Lee Laney to form Tortured Pine Pottery Studio. The same degree of care goes into Lee’s sgrafito stoneware, and the two fiends enjoy showing at festivals in the West Georgia area almost as much as they enjoy meeting new customers.
