Williamsburg Pottery was founded in 1938 by James E. Maloney as a small pottery workshop.  Jim bought a half-acre of land on Route 60 and opened a pottery kiln. There, he started making pottery in the 17th and 18th century styles he learned as an apprentice at Jamestown Colony.  This was still during the Great Depression, so this was a bold move for Mr. Maloney.   During WWII business was suspended but shortly afterward the pottery boomed.  It was a bold move, but it paid off, by the 1980’s, the company’s website said it stretched more than 200 acres and sold over 80,000 items.  They’ve been in business for over 80 years.  Today is not exactly what it once was, Maloney died in 2005 and the business has been struggling.  After an extensive remodel in 2010, they’ve reinvented themselves as a the “new” Williamsburg Pottery.  There are now 3 European-boutique-style Marketplaces: Gourmet Kitchen, Home Essentials, and Outdoor Living.  They now offer thousands of items both International and USA-made.  Not sure if that business model will survive, time will tell.  One thing remains the same, the bronze statue of James Maloney continues to stand in the center of his Pottery.
