Jerry Brown Pottery

If you love history, if you love art, and if you love something “different,” this will be the right place! Jerry Brown Pottery is the only known mule-powered pug mill still operating in the United States. Ninth-generation potter Jerry Brown and his mule, Blue, mix and grind the clay used to make his unique and one-of-a-kind pieces of pottery.

Jerry was awarded the National Heritage Fellowship and currently has five pieces of pottery on exhibit in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. The Alabama State Council on the Arts awarded the Alabama Folk Heritage Award to him in 2003. Also, in 2003, the Jerry Brown Arts Festival was created in his hometown of Hamilton, a juried arts festival which has been recognized as a Top 20 event in the Southeastern U.S. four of the last six years.
