Specialty Stores

Natural clay materials are molded and crafted right before your eyes into creative, functional stoneware pottery.

Choose from a wide variety of handmade pieces to enjoy in everyday settings or as decorative objects. Popular items are the ceramic fish. Actual fish that have been caught on a hook and line are used to create a mold and clay is used to reproduce a likeness. After firing, the clay is glazed and natural or artistic colorations are applied. The finished piece is a unique one of a kind piece - a reminder of the one that did not get away! Open Wednesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday and Monday, noon to 4 p.m.
