About Us

I am drawn to reality, rather than the illusion of reality.

Jacob Grant

Jacob Grant is a Master Potter with almost 25 years of experience doing pottery/ceramics.  He earned his B.A. at Eastern Illinois University and received his M.F.A. at Bradley University.

Teaching for over 20 years, Jacob has given thousands of people the experience of learning the ancient tradition of turning mud into objects which can be used as functional dinnerware, and can last tens of thousands of years.

Since 2000, starting out at local farmers markets,  Jacob has sold his work across the United States.  Through art fairs and festivals, indoor wholesale/retail shows, and galleries (national and international), Jacob has displayed and marketed his functional pottery and sculptural ceramics.

When he isn't busy at the studio he enjoys spending time with his kids.

We are located in the back of a large, historic warehouse called "The Mill" in Peoria's Warehouse District.
