Original Designs

Mary Alice Hadley created most of our current designs and inspired all of them. Every artist was trained by a protégé of Mrs. Hadley. Genuine Hadley Pottery pieces have the well known hand-painted signature on the bottom or side of the piece. Occasionally you will even see the signature etched in the glaze.

1900s

A region abundant in ancient clay deposits.

Louisville has been a center of pottery-making for generations. Out of this proud tradition, Mary Alice Hadley established one of Louisville’s most iconic and well-known potteries. The story begins in the early 1900s.
