Tony and Mindy Winchester

Tony and Mindy Winchester Persia, IAWinchester Pottery is the husband & wife team of potter Tony & equine artist Mindy Winchester. We make our living as studio artists out of our rural western Iowa home.
We have both a reduction kiln & a salt kiln, and somehow, three distinct lines of pottery, (some 6 tons of clay worth)manage to go through our four hands each year.

Tony uses both our kilns to make his personal contemporary art pottery, and we collaborate with our line of horse pottery,all thrown by Tony & then decorated with horses & landscapes by Mindy. Every piece we make is one of a kind and done free hand. We are both in the studio full time & travel to about 20 juried art fairs & horse expos a year to make our living. Our work may be also found in a few select galleries and gift shops across the country- (the Appaloosa Museum gift shop in Moscow ID is our newest addition) and we have done personalized trophies and awards for the NY Racing Assoc as well as dozens of other regional and national clubs from POAs to Morgans to National show Horses.
