The Stahlís Pottery historical site is a significant example of a rural arts and crafts revival pottery. The round, bee-hive, wood-fired kiln (originally built in 1933,) survives to the present day.

Brothers, Thomas and Isaac Stahl revived Stahlís Pottery in the mid-1930s. They used the potting skills they had learned from their father, Charles Stahl, in the late nineteenth century. Charles Stahlís pottery site was located along the Indian Creek in the village of Powder Valley, Pennsylvania.

The Stahl brothers produced both utilitarian & decorative redware pottery from the years, 1934 until 1950.

ďRedwareĒ pottery was named for the distinctive color produced from local sources of clay.

Artist Carrie (Stahl) Schultz, Thomasí daughter, decorated many of the sgraffito plates made by Thomas and Isaac. Russell Stahl, apprenticed as a potter under his Father, Isaac.† After 1950, Russell ran the pottery and fired the kiln for the last time in 1956.
