Life Story

Tom and Dianne Starr have been full-time potters since 1975. Dianne is orginally from Winchester, Massachusetts, while Tom was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. After collecting their BA degrees at the same college in Ohio, they headed back East as man and wife, potter and potter.

Since 1979, their studio, retail shop and home has been in a 150 year old brick barn near Hanover, Pennsylvania. Nestled in the Pigeon Hills along Beaver Creek, the old bank barn offers a magical setting for their creative talents. The rhythms of nature feed the rhythms of working with clay and bronze in a way that promotes harmonious creative output.
