Jim Burke is the founder and owner of Burke Pottery, a full-time ceramics studio, based in the hamlet of Millers Mills, New York.

Jim first discovered his passion for pottery after following his wife to a beginner’s lesson. He continued in private study, until deciding to pursue a master’s degree in ceramics at James Madison University. After graduation, Jim led a diverse career, working as both an Art History professor and partner in his family dairy farm; however, he remained active in the studio developing his style and techniques.

As a result, in 2004, Jim was able to establish Burke Pottery, fulfilling a long-time goal of being a full-time artist. Here, he strives to combine functionality, quality, and a distinctive style, creating art that is wholly unique, but also suited for everyday use.

In addition to his studio location, Jim’s work is available at several fine art galleries and shops throughout New York State, including Munson Williams Proctor Institute in Utica and the Smithy Pioneer Gallery in Cooperstown. He is also a member of the Syracuse Ceramic Guild, the Artisan’s Guild of Oneonta, and a founding member of Gallery 54 in Skaneateles.
