Mark & Sarah Batory, owners of Hollowed Earth Pottery

After working in clay for the past 14 years (mostly out of our home), we opened a pottery studio at the Hampton Station in Greenville, SC.  Quickly we discovered that there was an entire community that was excited to get their hands into clay. We have outgrown our space and are excited to announce that we will be moving a few doors down into a new studio that offers 4X the amount of space for throwing clay! This new space will give you the opportunity to take more classes, join together with other great artists, and of course, make even more awesome pottery.

Our home studio since 2015

 How the funds will be used

While our new space is spoken for, there are a few needs that must be met before we can really get the party started!

$12,000 - Student Wheels

We currently don’t have enough wheels to meet the growing needs of our classes and studio members. Purchasing 6 additional Brent pottery wheels will double our total wheels and our ability to reach more students.

Brent Wheels

Stretch Goals


$15,000 - Production Equipment

A slab roller is a tool we use every day in our production. We currently work with a table top slab roller, but upgrading to full size slab roller will allow us to increase our production and continue to meet the needs of our growing clientele. A pug mill is another awesome tool we would like to integrate into our studio. While mixing clay by hand is (technically) an option, a growing pottery studio really needs a pug mill to make use of the excess clay from production and the classroom.

These tools will help keep costs down for our studio, and in turn, members like you.  It will also enable us to keep the level of waste to a minimum, and operate an even more environmentally conscious business. These benefits give us  more time to invest in our craft and you, the student.

Slab Roller
$20,000 - Retail Equipment & More Wheels

 Entering a larger studio means we will have more opportunities to display our craft! Work tables, drying racks, and product showcase units will all be needed.

The proceeds of this stretch goal would also go towards purchasing an additional an additional 2 wheels, for a total of 8 eight pottery wheels, as well as a new POS system.

Additional Wheels

We are so excited to see how our Studio Community will continue to grow to fill our next home.

    Limited Edition Astronaut Mug

    These mugs are a very limited edition collaboration between Mark Batory and fellow Greenville potter, Will Donovan. The mugs themselves are made by Mark and are food safe and microwave/dishwasher safe. The astronaut designs are created originally by Will. These designs are added to the mugs through an additional process, specially printed and then applied and fired in a kiln a third time under special conditions.
    Theses tongue and cheek mugs feature quotes that vary on each mug and reference iconic movies (think Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Jurassic Park). Mugs will be distributed by preference based on the order of pledges. Mugs will be shipped after the Kickstarter is completed.

    Custom Large Serving Bowl + Tile

    This special edition platter will be the result of two very special artists' combined effort. Studio member Annie Singletary will form the large platter from our clay, to be painted by local artist Annie Koelle. Combined this will make a wonderful piece, perfect for display or serving in your home. You can find examples of both of their work online @anniekoelle and @anrobb

    Additionally, you will show your support for the arts with a Tile. Each Tile will be hand-etched with your own special name or a one-word message of positivity. Each Tile will then be combined into a mosaic art-piece as a permanent fixture in our new studio. Thank you for helping us grow!
