Pioneer Pottery studio and gallery/sales shop is housed in a converted stable on a working cattle ranch in the foothills of the Beartooth Mountains. Stoneware pottery is handmade on location by master craftsmen Janet Hero Dodge and Julie Dickinson. The pots are noted for distinctive decorations inspired by the animals, plants, colors, and textures of the Montana landscape.
Both potters were trained in the European apprenticeship tradition by Marguerite Wildenhain and Janet studied pottery in Kyoto, Japan.
The riverfront site has historical significance as the original homestead of the first white woman settler in the upper East Rosebud Valley.
From Roscoe, follow the main street past the Grizzly Bar & Restaurant to the clearly marked Pioneer Pottery entry gate. Follow the lane for one mile.
