Williamsburg, Virginia (Thursday, August 16, 2018) - The Williamsburg Pottery celebrated its' 80th Anniversary at the Kingsmill Resort on August 16, 2018. Mrs. Kim Maloney, President and CEO, hosted the party, taking guests back through time with slideshows of the late Mr. Jimmy Maloney and his evolution of the company since 1938.
