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.

If I had more money and time, I'd have been here much longer. The items at KCW are diverse, beautiful and delightfully local. I loved the handmade blown glass suncatcher made by a local artist as well as the stone work pendant necklaces. I love this store and will return on every OBX trip for another memento!

Check out this wonderful little shop the next time you are ln Avon. Lots of local art work and the selection is endless to meet all budgets. Cute displays and something new everytime you stop in. Locally owned and operated, you may have an opportunity to meet one of the artists! It's a happy shop and great folks!

If you are looking for one of a kind gifts or unusual wall art, you have come to the right place. Kinnakeet Clay Works owner Antoinette Mattingly makes pottery wall art from actual natural materials including crabs, fish, flowers, octopus, etc. I have several of her pieces on my walls and my friends oooh and ahhh over them. Antoinette can... More
