JOBI POTTERY was founded in 1953 in the tiny town of Truro, here on Cape Cod, by Joe Colliano and Bill Hastings, known as ‘The Jobis’. The shop was located near the Cape Cod Highland Lighthouse in a converted hot dog stand.
When the Cape Cod National Seashore was created in the late 1960’s, the Jobis moved their shop to North Truro and eventually sold the business to Lee and Elizabeth Locke, who ran Truro Crafters until it closed in 2002.
The current owner is Susan Kurtzman, who, along with her son Eli, and Steve Locke continue to make all of the pottery in their production studio in Truro.
Each owner has put their own distinctive mark on Jobi Pottery, while staying true to the original forms and style. The Jobis created the traditional designs, the Lockes added a blue lighthouse and seagull design, and Susan Kurtzman, has created new colors and new patterns.
Jobi Pottery is committed to keeping it local, and keeping it hand made. Each piece is created on the premises, painted freehand and fired in our pottery barn.
Jobi Pottery has long been a collectible for those who travel to the Outer Cape and is also finding new popularity with those who are drawn to its retro look, bright colors and everyday practicality.
The Gallery also features the work of Milton Wright, Jr. (1920 – 2005), a long time resident of Truro. His work captures the spirit and the mutability of the landscape wherever he painted. He referred to himself as a “colorist,” and his oils and watercolors
