This shop is a little off of the beaten path but has lots of charm. There are some great pottery pieces for purchase. Beautiful colors and useful items. The merchandise is constantly changing and everything is one of a kind. I will be back on our next visit to Port A.

Love this place! This was our first visit, & sorry we didn't find it sooner. Lots of pieces by the owner as well as some by other artists. There's not only pottery but jewelry as well. We will be sure to come back the next time we're on the island.

Brenda is absolutely wonderful. She has a lot of beautiful and unique pieces made by herself and other talented artisans. I pick something up every time I go to Port Aransas.

We went looking for a gift for a friend, but several of us ended up buying things for ourselves, too. I got a beautiful ornament made from the imprint of a starfish. Next time I'm getting the one with the seahorses! There were cups and bowls and art and jewelry and all sorts of things. Everyone should stop by and... More

Great pottery, but I go for the earrings!!! Very original pieces! She actually took imprints of baby starfish and sea horses onto colored clay and made gorgeous earrings!!! I can't wait til my next trip to Port A, because I'll be back!!!

I love to take a little something home from a vacation to remind me of the experience. On this trip to Port Aransas, I dropped by Potters on Cotter and found a nice selection of hand-thrown and decorated pottery. I added a wonderful mug to my collection. Nice folks, great work!

When I travel to a beach town I like to find the studios of local artists and see the town through their eyes. Potters on Cotter is a working pottery studio where you can browse the works of art on display and watch new pieces being created. While we were there, Chad and Felicia, visiting potters from Illinois, were creating... More
