JOBI POTTERY was founded in 1953 in the tiny town of Truro, on Cape Cod... by Joe Colliano and Bill Hastings, known as 'The Jobis'. Current owner Susan Kurtzman is continuing the Jobi tradition in her own Truro studio replicating the old Jobi designs and creating new ones each year.
The Jobi Story
Jobi™ Pottery is a Truro cottage industry that began in 1953 by original owners Joe Colliano and Bill Hastings (“Jo-bi”). Today, owner/designer Susan Kurtzman still uses the original mid-century casting molds to create Jobi Pottery in her Truro studio.
Every piece of pottery and pottery dinnerware is handmade and hand painted using the same methods the Jobis created. The retro look of our pottery shapes and designs can be traced back to Cape Cod-inspired work by Joe and Bill, but we’ve also added new colors and motifs to compliment the originals.
The pottery continues to be hand made in our Truro, Cape Cod studio and can be purchased online through our shopping cart and at the MANY convenient locations listed on the WHERE TO BUY page.Read More
