Chalky mount Pottery
Discover the authentic culture of Barbados as you meet a local Chalky Mount potter and discover the islands cultural accommodations and activities.
Meet John Springer Master potter and Teacher. Drop in anytime and you are likely to meet him at work. If he is not working he will likely stop and entertain you with a demonstration of his magic art.
In the words of John Springer Master Potter "One thing that sets us apart is that we have over 250 years of culture. There was one point in time the utensils used in our homes were pottery from right here in the village. And we also use our local materials that are from right here in the village."
And what you can count on; you will usually see the potter at work. There are not many places you can do that nowadays as its all so industrial and many places use molds and factory process not open to the public.
