OUR STORY

Forrest Jackson, CEO and Bob Jackson, Founder/ President

Our story begins in 1983 in Dallas, Texas with a retail pottery warehouse selling handmade and machine-made Italian pottery. We soon relocated and opened a full-scale retail garden center serving North Texas. Like many of our wholesale customers, in addition to terracotta, we began selling plants, gift items, grills, and select outdoor furniture. As appreciation for our pottery grew, we separated the wholesale from the retail garden center and formed Jackson Pottery (wholesale).

Since the beginning, we've had a love affair with Italy. The people, food, wine, terracotta, and countryside are all shrouded in allure and passion. It is this passion for Italy that opened the door for a partnership with Domiziani Design in 2019.

Over 30 years later, Jackson Pottery continues to offer “Best in Class” pottery and planters from all over the world, including our own small batch manufactured line, Jackson Cast Stone. We are thrilled and excited to have added the incredible line of indoor/ outdoor tables from Domiziani. The brand represents a unique, unmatched passion for art, creativity, and family. Unlike any other, Domiziani products are true functional masterworks of creative genius.

If you ever get the chance to meet Bob, Forrest, or one of the team members, do get them to tell you the story of how Bob got into selling Italian pottery. Let’s just say he was in commercial real estate and the dry-cleaning business one day, and on a plane to Italy the next. The rest is the spice of life . . . SALUTE!
