The Woodfired Pottery is a potter’s studio in Glen Huon, owned and operated by John Martin, in Tasmania’s Huon Valley. Glen Huon is a 5-minute drive west of Huonville, and 40 minutes south of Hobart (58 kms).
The Woodfired Pottery studio and workshop is located in a converted early-20th century barn, surrounded by gardens and farmland.
