Stunning hand-thrown pottery, private events and
classes, and an effusive, passionate and talented
potter are the prime components that make up Tire City Potters. Owned by artist
Shishir Chokshi, Tire City Potters was established in 2001, and has become a choice
destination for seasonal pottery items, classes and events, such as Forever Pumpkins,
TCP Throwing Experience, and Mug Workshop.
The Tire City gallery displays some of the finest hand thrown pottery in the Augusta area. A seasoned potter, Shishir creates eclectic pieces that are not only stand-alone works of art, but that are functional, too. From bowls and mugs, to tap handles and pinch pots, Tire City is the perfect place to find one of a kind gifts and household items. Tire City operates with a team of apprentices who learn as they produce work; one of a kind pieces are crafted and fired on the premises. Tire City welcomes the public to kiln openings and special product launches, and it is an ideal space for group parties and events—kids absolutely love learning to throw pots for their birthdays. A solid supporter of the community, Tire City also offers a military discount.
