Not many families have their own entry in the Encyclopedia of Alabama –  but the history of Steve Miller’s folks take up a couple of pages. That’s because they’ve been making some of the South’s best pottery for more than 150 years right here in Bibb County Alabama.

The Millers sell their products on Steve’s Facebook page, in their studio (still on Highway 5), and at craft fairs such as Kentuck. They’ve exhibited their works at galleries around the state, and at the Smithsonian’s American Folk Festival in Washington, D.C., and the Alabama Clay Conference in Birmingham.

Bibb County is proud to be home to Alabama’s oldest family folk pottery tradition.
