Welcome to the Buck Pottery web site. We sincerely thank you for your interest in our traditional handmade pottery.

Buck Pottery was established in 1982 by Terry and Dee Buck, on the banks of the beautiful Guadalupe River in Gruene Texas, four miles north of New Braunfels in the heart of the scenic Texas Hill Country.

Our workshop and gallery are housed in an 1870’s barn, once used to store supplies for the general mercantile store in this early German, cotton-farming town.

The style of our pottery is the culmination of nearly thirty years of being full time potters. All of our pottery is designed and produced under our careful direction. We use Texas clay, employing several local slip clays and wood ash for many of our glazes. The clay is formed on a potter’s wheel or “hand built” out of slabs or coils. It is then fired in wood and gas fueled kilns. The exterior surface of the pottery is enhanced in the firing by the fly ash from the wood-burning kiln or from the soda vapor of the gas fired kiln. All of the pottery is oven, dishwasher and microwave safe and contains no lead.

We invite you to visit our workshop and gallery. The gallery hours are 10-6 Monday-Saturday and 11-5 on Sunday.

While visiting Gruene you may want to have lunch or dinner in one of the many local restaurants, shop in the unique stores or listen to great live music at Gruene Hall, Texas’ oldest dance hall.
