Form, function, and spirit. Every piece of pottery made by Jon at Jon Partridge Pottery bears this signature. The work is created from a love to see it exist. It has an inner vitality, the result of a perfect marriage between the conception and its realization. It’s what distinguishes the work made by this consummate potter who finds endless personal fulfilment in exploring new designs, making and finishing one-of-a-kind pieces entirely by his hand.
Over the years, Jon and his wife, Suzann, have transformed their property into one of Muskoka’s most popular pottery studios. The 19th century red brick farmhouse has been nurtured back to its original condition. A huge vegetable and flower garden tended by Suzann occupies the spot where a dilapidated barn once stood. Behind the house, a renovated chicken coop serves as a showroom for Jon’s pottery which is made next door in his modern Gothic-gabled post and beam studio.
