My family has collected McCarty since the 1970’s and I managed to obtain the highly coveted McCarty Hippo. I intend to be buried with it.. Lee and Pup were family friends for about half a century and I would bet my Rolex that my mother has the most extensive collection in Alabama while my Auntie has the largest collection in all of Mississippi..We could stage an exhibition at The Met in NYC if we combined our collections...I was terribly fond of Lee but I felt a special bond with Pup..Her love of gardening and water gardens was terribly infectious and I started building my own ponds stuffed with lilies from Thailand and Giant Papyrus from Egypt..WITH THAT SAID, my jury is still out on the ‘godchildren’ who received the McCarty mantle and legacy LONG before they were prepared for the responsibility..The lids did not fit on the casseroles, the plates were lopsided....The quality just was NOT there.. One of the ‘god children’ said “I have finally perfected the ‘McCarty’ signature that goes on each brown paper bag....” Well that is just a groundbreaking achievement , bless his heart...Now if he could just learn to throw a bowl or even a drinking cup on a potters wheel...

A trip to McCarty’s never disappoints. If you are looking for anything specific they will always assist you in finding the perfect piece. They will also ship if needed which is great since we are 3 hours away. The pottery is high quality and something that can be enjoyed for years since the pieces are timeless. McCarty’s is a must stop in the Mississippi Delta.

McCarty’s pottery was super busy when we arrived. There were many unique things to look at and touch. We also visited their gardens and Koi pond which were not crowded at all and there were places to sit. I thought the prices were rather high.
