Towne  Potter  Studio

Raku * Saggar * Stoneware * Custom  Orders

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. His work is exhibited in shows and galleries throughout the country.

Les moved his studio in 1993 to the small town of Mineola, Texas to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city life of Dallas, Texas. His 3000 square foot studio is located off of Hwy. 69 North of Mineola on County Road 2330.
