Jury - 2021 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR
George Watson, a native to the Delaware Valley, discovered early in his childhood his passion for The Arts. Growing up in the 50s and 60’s in a large Irish-American household, George was inspired by many artists such as Degas, Monet, Laurtrec and Picasso.
In 1993, George channeled his artistic vision and talent creating Double U Design, a graphic design company committed to providing creative expertise and business-to-business communications. Clients include both Fortune 500 companies and independent businesses.
Through the ongoing success of Double U Design, George still devoted time for his love of pottery. Encouraged by family, friends and clients, George Watson Pottery was born. George Watson Pottery specializes in stoneware and Raku, creating a unique design and look that blends with any decor. Specifically, the Raku firing technique and the reduction cause the pots to develop vivid colors and copper sheens. Oxygen deprivation (reduction) and drastic temperature changes determine the rich hues. As a result, no two items are exactly alike. This is what defines George Watson Pottery.
