Jane Schwantes is a retired art teacher with a passion for all things art. After her retirement eight years ago, she began experimenting with mural and watercolor painting; but with a stroke of luck, a friend of hers in West Virginia gave her a thousand pounds worth of porcelain to drive all the way home to South Carolina. Since then, she has been honing in her craft and created Schwantes Pottery. Jane offers stoneware and tableware that includes mugs, wine goblets, bowls, serving bowls, teapots and teacups, soap dishes and more! All pieces are either wheel-thrown, hand built from sculpted clay or a combination of both.
We display AND sell these beautiful and unique pieces at The Local Buzz, so you should see her work for yourself!
