“Drop off the beaten track in Dennis to see this-you won't be sorry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

If you value artistic talent and creativity in clay, you have come to the right place when you turn off 6A and drive down past Scargo Lake up to this wonderful indoor/outdoor pottery gallery/school/showroom. Harry Holl and his "family" have been producing unforgetable pottery creations for a very long time. And I know that for sure as my family has been coming here and purchasing favorite pieces for over 46 years! Very hard to describe what you might encounter here except to say that the glazes on individual pieces or sets of dishes are uniquely beautiful. The free standing castles are striking and the other artworks are as well. The fish bird feeders are available in a large number of various glaze decorations and are a great lower cost purchase or gift for a beloved friend. I own several of these as well as several bowls that supplement my dishes and beloved mugs. Does it sound like I am prejudiced where my functional pottery is concerned? You be I am. Various creators are present to help you with your purchasers; sometime they are family members. You may also go home with a lovely wind chime or two that hang among the ceramic pieces although not created here. Enjoy!

“Scargo Stoneware Pottery & Art Gallery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Located off the beaten path (Route 6A) in a peaceful pine grove next to Scargo Lake. A hidden gem. Worth a visit. Pottery that is art.

“Fabulous pottery in an inviting, relaxing atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Sometimes we forget to visit what is in our own back yard, which was the case until now for me with respect to Scargo Pottery. One late morning I drove up the small road next to Scargo Lake to find a rather large area devoted to the art of pottery.

There are many garden pieces (my favorite being the castles) surrounded by benches that just invites you to sit down and relax. The inside is also very inviting as there are chairs set up so you can sit down to watch one of the potters throw right in front of you. Everyone that comes in seems to be an old friend.

The pottery itself is a diverse collection including dinner sets, painted ceramic wall installations, vases, castles, and things I have never even thought of like berry bowls! The glazes they use are simply gorgeous so much so that I was trying to think of people to buy for.

Overall, if you are along 6A in Dennis and you want to see something a bit different or just need to relax from the summer traffic stop in and check out this place.
