About Ben Wolff Pottery

Ben Wolff has been surrounded by Pottery, Horticulture, and Music his whole life.  Ben and his half sister Elizabeth Wolff, are third generation artists.  Ben's grandfather, Robert J. Wolff, was an American abstract artist and a professor of art.  His father, Guy Wolff, is a potter, pottery designer, and musician.

As a youngster, Ben spent weekends with his father, Guy Wolff, watching him throw pottery in his shop in Woodville, Connecticut.  Ben first had his hands in clay around the age of 1 and actually threw his first, very small piece at the age of 2.  As a teenager, Ben worked on his step fathers dairy farm, milking cows (Terry Tanner Farm, Warren CT).  Upon graduating high school, Ben worked in various trades but always made time to make pottery with his father. 

Since 1999, Ben has made pottery for both the public and for stores around the country.  (For information on how to obtain Ben Wolff Pottery for your store please contact us.)  Ben works out of home in Goshen CT where he creates all of his pieces by hand on a pottery wheel (Shimpo Wheels).  He makes and ships all of his products with help from his wife Corinne Wolff.  The pottery that Ben makes is based on his own visions and designs, following methods learned from his father and beyond. 

In addition to being a potter he is also a musician.  He plays an array of different instruments and styles of music in bands.  For more information on Ben's music visit the music page.
