Charlie has been a potter since 1986 when he got his start as an after school employee at Sims Pottery in Gillsville, Georgia. He began throwing flower pots and later turned to folk pottery. In 1998, Charlie began turning his handmade pottery into stylish lamps and this led to the begining of Charlie West Lamps.
Honey, Charlie's wife, works with him in the pottery. She and Charlie are constantly experimenting with glazes to come up with new and exciting product. Most of the beautiful glazing is done by Honey.
