Blue Mountain Pottery was a Canadian pottery company located in Collingwood, Ontario. It was founded in 1953 by Dennis Tupy and Jozo Weider (b. 1908 in Zhilina Czechoslovakia) and closed in 2004.
Originally producing hand-painted ski motifs on purchased blanks, production of the red clay items started in 1953-1954. It went on to produce various types of pottery, from animal figurines to pots and vases. The company’s products have a large fan base and are collected worldwide.
Not only available in blue drip glaze but search for it in gold, blue, red as well as in matt finishes and artisan editions. Spectacular era of Canadian Pottery. Many smaller companies popped up as employees left the Blue Mountain Factory and started up their own.
Companies such as Evangeline, McMaster and Canadian Art Pottery to name a few, I have many pieces of these potteries available as well to purchase.
