Marietta Run Clay has been producing hand thrown and painted stoneware in Athens County for over 30 years. While keeping the popular bluebird and iris decorations, they expand their glaze and designs every year. An intriguing selection of stoneware pieces offers customers a variety of choices.
Besides numerous wholesale customers Susan Sherman has designed dinnerware and yearly plates for Glenlaurel, a Scottish Inn located in the Hocking Hills region. The dinnerware is used daily at breakfast and lunch and is featured in the gift shop. A new wall plate has been designed every year since 1995. Guests receive a yearly plate as part of a gift basket when they visit the Inn on their anniversary. Susan has also designed commemorative plates for the Village of Amesville, The Rabbit Hash General Store in Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, and ODC galleries in Cincinnati and Cleveland. They have been the featured potters at Mountain Laurel (formerly Mt. Leather & General Store) in Athens for 25 years, stamping each pot made for the store with the ATHENS logo–a favorite of patrons. Marietta Run Clay stoneware has been sent all over the world from the Athens store. Good customer relations and a commitment to quality and reliability are an ongoing part of Marietta Run Clay.
