About Us

Springfield Pottery is a fine craft gallery, community clay center, and the working studio of founders Nathan and Jennifer Falter. The Falters opened their studio in 1998 in order to bring a ceramic educational center to the community of Springfield and Southwest Missouri.

Our Mission is to provide an environment that fosters an awareness and appreciation of the ceramic arts within the community by offering classes, workshops, exhibitions, residency opportunities, and outreach programs, as well as the promotion of fine crafts within a gallery setting.
