Ken Guin - Front Royal, VA



The Guild


Fox Hill Pottery is owned and operated by husband and wife team of Ken Guin and Rebecca Altizer.
They do their pottery in their home studio, which is located just south of Front Royal, VA

Rebecca is a retired elementary teacher and Ken is a retiree of the Federal government.
They got started in pottery by taking classes at Lord Fairfax Community College and have continued to enjoy the creative process of the art.

Ken discovered that wheel-thrown pottery gave him the most pleasure and Rebecca loves the endless variations of hand building.

Their work includes mugs, casserole dishes, bowls, face jugs, vases, platters, and wall art.

They are constantly experimenting with different shapes, textures, glazes, clays, and techniques.
All of their work is glazed and fired at their home in either a gas-fired Raku kiln or an electric kiln.
