Where art is business: Small Business of the Month The Village Potters
In true Asheville fashion, creativity, collaboration and commerce collide at The Village Potters, our Small Business of the Month. 
"We celebrate creativity and people," said founder Sarah Wells Rolland. "We have created a community where we support, encourage and assist each other toward success." 
The Village Potters is a fully equipped 13,000 square-foot Pottery housing six working professional studios, and includes three showrooms exhibiting and selling the fine, contemporary ceramic art of the permanent artists. The Village also serves 28 advanced students, a clay supply company, and a Teaching Center offering classes and one-time clay experiences for visitors and residents of Western NC.
