La Luz Pottery

The La Luz Pottery Factory is a 235-acre property in La Luz New Mexico. Built-in 1930 by the wealthy New England industrialist Roland Hazard, the factory created over 90 styles of pottery that were actively collected around the world before it closed in 1949. Many of the original buildings are still intact and tours of the property are available through the Tularosa Basin Museum of History on Saturday mornings.  Call the Tularosa Basin Museum of History to reserve your spot!
