It was really great to see the process of making these lovely pieces. The staff were awesome to show us how they make a simple plate and the vast variety of items made from clay. A must visit to any tourist visiting Barbaros.

We visited the pottery at the weekend so, unfortunately, there was no production. However, lots of amazing, unique designs on display and, of course, we had to make a purchase. Well worth a visit.
