About Us

Les Mitchell became fascinated with pottery when his family bought the historic Ideal Pottery Factory which was established in 1920. He studied basic pottery techniques at Booker T. Washington School of the Arts in Dallas. After graduation, Les developed his wheel throwing skill while apprenticing under Michael Obranovich, a specialist in functional stoneware. He then concentrated on Raku while working with Randy Brodnax, a teacher  in investigational techniques  in pottery.

Les opened Towne Potter Studio in 1983 in Dallas and then moved it to Mineola, Tx. in 1992. His work is exhibited in shows and galleries throughout the country.
