Location: 6826 Corning Rd., Zionsville, PA 18092

30 potters displaying and selling their work.  Demonstrations throughout the day.

The Stahl’s Pottery historical site is a significant example of a rural arts and crafts revival pottery. The round, beehive, wood-fired kiln (originally built in 1933,) survives to the present day.

Brothers, Thomas and Isaac Stahl revived Stahl’s Pottery in the mid-1930s. They used the potting skills they had learned from their father, Charles Stahl, in the late nineteenth century. Charles Stahl’s pottery site was located along the Indian Creek in the village of Powder Valley, Pennsylvania.

The Stahl brothers produced both utilitarian & decorative redware pottery from the years, 1934 until 1950.
