The Start of JustPots: Filling the Gap in the Pottery Industry

The Start of JustPots: Filling the Gap in the Pottery Industry

In the heart of Texas, where the weather can be as unpredictable as it is beautiful, a simple yet transformative idea took root. This idea would go on to shape our journey and bring to life what is now known as JustPots. It all began one spring, following a particularly wild Texas storm.

As the storm clouds rolled in, heavy raindrops pelted the ground, and strong winds swirled through the air. The weather had decided to put on a show, and it was doing so with gusto. When the tempest finally subsided, and the sun broke through the clouds, a peculiar scene awaited me in my garden. Many of my cherished pots, lovingly arranged to accentuate the beauty of my outdoor space, had been knocked over and shattered by the storm's fury.

In the aftermath of this unexpected havoc, I found myself on a mission to replace these broken pots. I knew exactly what I wanted – pots that would not only serve their functional purpose but would also be exquisite pieces of art in their own right. I yearned for pottery that would complement the natural beauty of my garden, enhancing it in ways that generic, mass-produced alternatives could not.

So, the search began. I visited local garden centers, scoured online marketplaces, and even ventured to the nearest Home Depot, only to be met with disappointment. The available options were bland, uninspiring, and far from the vision I had for my outdoor sanctuary. I knew I couldn't be the only one seeking something more, something special.

As I delved deeper into my quest for the perfect pots, it became apparent that there was a substantial gap in the industry. While there were countless outlets for mass-produced, ordinary garden containers, there was a scarcity of truly beautiful, unique, and handcrafted pottery. It was this realization that sparked the idea for JustPots.

The concept behind JustPots was simple yet powerful – to curate and offer an extraordinary selection of indoor and outdoor pottery that celebrated artistry, craftsmanship, and the natural world. We envisioned a place where gardening enthusiasts and design aficionados alike could find pots that were not only functional but also pieces of art that elevated their outdoor and indoor spaces.

Our journey began with a passion for gardening and the outdoors, coupled with a desire to bridge the gap between functional garden containers and works of art. We believed that everyone should have access to pots that transformed their spaces into havens of beauty and tranquility. Thus, JustPots was born, driven by a deep love for gardens and an unwavering commitment to providing exceptional pottery to our customers.

Today, as we reflect on our beginnings, we are immensely proud of how far we've come. JustPots has become a hub for pottery enthusiasts, gardeners, interior designers, and businesses looking to elevate their spaces with the elegance of artisanal pottery. We have even grown into the world of collegiate pottery (Gig 'Em!), custom fountains, wind chimes and so much more!

With your support, we continue to thrive, filling the gap in the pottery industry, and helping our customers find the perfect pots that inspire and delight, just as that stormy Texas spring day inspired us to embark on this incredible journey.
