Visitors Welcome-Open Daily 10am-5pm
Open year round, the crew of artists work steadily to build up their stock of handmade dishes, pots, lamps, and other household items in preparation for the summer rush. It is not unusual for the crew to work very long hours. The process for making durable stoneware pottery takes weeks to be done properly. Each piece of work must be created wet, dry (at least a week), undergo a bisque firing (8 hours approx.), glazing, and a final high firing in the gas kiln which takes a couple of days to be done correctly. The resulting stoneware pottery is beautiful, durable and dishwasher safe.
Visitors are welcome to wander through the studio and watch the artists at work. The pace is leisurely and the atmosphere is friendly, so plan time to browse.
