It was the best part of vacation and would definitely recommend to others! Tricia was so helpful in making the pottery. The next time I come to the Outerbanks it... More

This I I took my daughter and her boyfriend with me. We made gorgeous mugs and plan to add a mug each summer vacation! Great fun! Super friendly staff who will accommodate all skill levels. Book ahead because classes fill fast.

My husband had won a gift card on their Facebook page and when we visited in October, we thought we would stop in. It is a very quaint shop and the workers were very helpful. Tons of interesting things to look at. We used our gift card and then some! We will stop back on our visit in October again... More

My daughter and I had a really good time, we are looking forward to receive our pottery. Trish is very patient and passionate about her work, so we were able to make a wonderful art work. We will go again on our next trip to Avon, NC.

A quick detour off Hwy. 12 in Avon brings you into Kinnakeet Village, home to Kinnakeet Clay. Run by a younger generation of an old Kinnakeet family this artisan shop is a local treasure. I never know which is more enjoyable, viewing the eclectic artwork or sharing a little time with the charming owner. You owe it to yourself to... More

You just want to think of ways to incorporate the unique designs in your home. I have in fact used Antoinette's pieces when remodeling my kitchen and... More
