A beloved La Grande gem of a shop for over two decades, the roots of The Potter’s House Gallery date back to 1993 when Bob and Judy Jensen opened a summer gallery in Joseph (Jensen Artforms), which they ran for 10 years. Tired of schlepping their pottery, paintings, and ceramics to sell at outdoor art events, they opened their own gallery, The Potter’s House Gallery. Since opening in 2000 in La Grande, the house on 6th Street has been Bob and Judy’s home and studio. Bob is a retired art teacher who is a potter and water colorist and Judy is the creative mind behind the selection of enchanting gifts.
Bob and Judy’s mission for The Potter’s House Gallery is to provide handmade and unique high-quality gifts for their customers, as well as a special piece of furniture or home décor upcycled from reclaimed furniture and other items.
The Potter’s House Gallery not only offers Bob’s one-of-kind Raku and Stoneware pottery and exquisite watercolors, but also features the work of other local Eastern Oregon artists. Thanks to Judy’s keen eye for the delightful, there are also extraordinary decorating, lifestyle, art, and hospitality gifts for the discerning customer.
Bob and Judy strive to treat their customers in a manner such that they will leave feeling better than when they entered.
Over the years, Bob and Judy Jensen have contributed so much to La Grande, not only through The Potter’s House Gallery, but also with their outreach to the community and support of other Northeastern Oregon artists.
