    Best pottery shop in town!
    Very well stocked pottery venue. Employee was very helpful touring us around their shop and taking about the procedures in making the pieces. Compared to other shops we visited in Avanos, this one was the best and reasonably prices. We even got to meet Mr. Galip.

    The artistic talent in this museum/gallery would make anyone proud to work there.
    This museum and gallery provides the opportunity to observe the creative process of ceramic art and the artisans trained in the ceramic tradition of Avanos heritage. We watched a potterer work a foot-operated wheel while turning the rich red clay from the banks Kizilirmak (Red River) into a stunning piece ceramic art ready to be hand-painted and fired. We then went into the gallery which consisted of a dozen rooms with many different items and designs. My wife and I decided to purchase a ceramic Ottoman kaftan which was shipped to us insured. We are very excited to show it to our friends.

    Friendly, welcoming atmosphere, beautiful craftsmanship.
    Craftsmanship was amazing, truly unique and expert. Me and my family were welcomed by incredibly friendly and kind owners. They treated us like family and made us feel right at home, as he took us through his pottery process. The shop has alot of history, and is truly worth a visit.

We loved our experience at Master Galip, a talented artist and also a very nice person, who greeted us and created a full experience in the heart of Cappadocian Ceramics - how it’s done, his private art collection, his French:). The tour and the explanations were perfectly completed and facilited by Baris, with his proficiency in English and his friendly approach. Quite unique experience.

Mehmet was very helpful and informative in describing the processes, history, and legacy that this place holds. Educational for my children, and a delight to walk through multiple rooms filled with such beautiful artwork. This place has many talented artists contributing their unique designs.

This workshop has been run by generations of the same family. We received a warm welcome with tea and were invited to show our skills on the pottery wheel (not much skill but good fun). They have some wonderful pottery and we purchased some small items.
Also, strangely is one of the most weird museums in the world...the Hair Museum, my wife now has a lock of her hair displayed there along with many thousands of others.

Top and authentic place run by a genuine family. Highly recommended to visit and enjoy every moment, from the warm welcome of Master Galip and his generous explanation and offerings, to the personal experience of trying to do pottery with the professionals.
And we continue our tour by visiting the art gallery where Galip's masterpieces are awingly displayed.

Informative session and Chez Gallip is an excellent host. His workshop is like Alladin's cave, full of colour and works of great creativity. Enjoyed this sales-stop the most, way better than the carpet workshops and those horrid leather jacket outlets.

From first minute to last minute Recep Usta guide us perfectly. He told the everything about pottery and products. He is designer potteries they made. He was helpful and kind. We are so glad to meet him. He also showed us how to make pot, my wife also tried. Anyone can try for free.
He showed us the Hair museum which is part of Chez Galip Pottery. It was very interesting and impressing experience for us. There were thousands of ladies hair on the wall from 1970s till now. My wife also cut her own piece of hair and hang there to be part of history. 😍

We went there because of the good reviews that we read previously but when we were there, the person that bring us inside said that there is no pottery demonstration and the gallery is a place for people to buy the products only.. So we went to Chez Ali Baba just beside it..
