The Potter's House Studio, an funky little, independently owned pottery painting studio at 3627 S. Westshore Blvd. in South Tampa will open it's doors to the public this Saturday, April 13.
Owner Josie Reed says, "I have never worked so hard in my life, and I was a teacher for Hillsborough County Schools for 16 years! The building, which is in a fabulous location needed extensive and very costly cosmetic work, so I rolled up my sleeves with a band of warm-hearted friends, and my studio is finally ready to greet the public!"
Josie has another reason to be thrilled as her studio is situated on the same property as Earl's Garden Shop. She and Walton, the owner of Earl's, have been friends since age 11.
"We have always had a great relationship, and now our customers can benefit from it as well. I feature a great line of pottery for the lawn and garden, and my customers can grab their pottery and a basket-full of glazes and head outdoors to the garden area to paint on nice days. It really doesn't get any better than that, and there's certainly not another place like this in Tampa! Check it out!"
