Jobi™ Pottery is a Cape Cod cottage industry that began in 1953 by original owners Joe Colliano and Bill Hastings (“Jo-bi”). 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. Today, owner/designer Susan Kurtzman still uses the original mid-century casting molds to create Jobi Pottery in her Truro studio.
Every piece is handmade and hand painted using the same methods the Jobis created. The retro look of their shapes can be traced back to the Jobi’s early work, but Susan has added new designs and colors to contemporize the pottery, making it a favorite choice for dinnerware and decor today. 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. We are proud to be a woman-owned business. Our pottery is “Made in America” by local Cape Codders.
