“Doug's work is absolutely beautiful and has the distinct feeling of a customized, commissioned piece. Each work of art is special and so personal. We have commissioned Doug's work on many occasions and milestones in our lives and frequently commission his gorgeous art as gifts for others. I've recommended Doug to several friends and would continue to do so. Each piece is not only exquisite, but affordable.”

I saw your Sea Turtle Platter that was donated to the Jekyll Island Turtle Foundation auction, and I was absolutely amazed, I have been searching for weeks for the perfect birthday gift for a friend.  Is there any way I can get one in the next week?

 Thanks so much 



“Doug Jones and his coastal themed pottery are top-sellers in my art gallery in St. Augustine, FL. Both Doug's functional pieces (mugs, bowls, platters, vases, wine coolers, etc.) and larger sculptural items depicting sea turtles are always top-quality and craftsmanship, beautifully-glazed, sell quickly and he is great about getting me exactly the new stock I need on time. The dip bowls, which cleverly come with a great shrimp spread recipe, are the #1 gift item we sell - customers can't get enough of them! I highly recommend Doug to any gallery as a fantastic artist to work with!” March 2010

 “The turtle bowl you created for my husband gifted to me far outweighed my expectations! From this piece, it is obvious that you love turtles as much as I do! Any one who looks at this bowl can see that you really understand turtles and how they act in nature, as it really looks like a turtle happily swimming in the sea. I spend every day looking at the bowl and it brings back very happy memories of the times I have spent with turtles in Cayman islands.. Hawaii.. Belize ...most in southeast Asia.”

“Thank you so very much for sending the big box of beautiful pottery to fill out our display.  I know it is a huge amount of trouble to pack and ship and I do appreciate it.  We have already sold about 4 of the dip bowls as well as one turtle bowl and a large fish platter.  When new pieces come in it is as though an energy is created which causes people to look and buy …… “

“As a gallery owner for the past fifteen years I have the opportunity to meet and support many artist..... Doug Jones is by far one of the most professional artists that I have worked with to date. Doug's work is always of the highest quality and he is always bringing in new designs and colors that reflect the current trends and decor which is a big plus for selling. Another wonderful quality that I have found about Doug is after having known and worked with him for the past six years he is always willing to positively support and assist other artist in their career which is a very refreshing quality in a person in this highly competitive field of the arts.”

“This Feb., happily wandered into 'Wanderings" and found your pieces (fish bowl and turtle/beach platter - 30 years living in Miami had me smiling, as soon as I saw your work).  Bought another 4-place setting set of everyday dishes to match your "sand" tones. ….”

“…..how my friends rave about your turtle platter and fish bowl.  Coming from south FL, they are a great tie-in with the water.”



“I was in the Signature Gallery the other day and fell in love with one of your coffee cups – one with a turtle. I love the blue color, the handle, and the feel of it.”



“I purchased one of your beautiful sea turtle bowls at the Deland Art Festival this afternoon.  I want to let you know how much my family loves it.  It will bring joy to our dinner table, even if my cooking doesn't …”


“I love my mug, and was wondering if I might order another as a gift for my brother.....” “The mug arrived and my brother loves it.  Thanks a lot.”
