HANDMADE IN THE NORTHWEST. Mossy Creek Pottery was founded in 1973 on six acres bordering the beautiful Siletz Bay Wildlife Refuge. Located just one scenic half-mile off U.S. Highway 101, the near century-old farmhouse is easily found as you travel on Immonen Road through a forest of spruce and hemlock. This hidden gem is home to the work of 40 Northwest artists. Inside you'll find a wide assortment of functional and decorative pottery in an array of glazes, representing the many and varied styles and techniques of our local and regional potters. Discover a little treasure for yourself or find a gift for someone special. There's something at Mossy Creek for every taste and any budget.

A quaint location. Only a little out of the way, but good signage. Would have been nice if artisans were there, but seems they use this as an outlet for their wares.

Quaint little house tucked back in the woods. Don’t miss this when traveling to the Oregon coast. Lots of coffee mugs, pie plates, casserole dishes etc., all hand made by locals. On occasion it’s hard to find someone to answer questions, but if you hang around a while, someone usually shows back up front.

On a whim we followed the sign off the highway. The road led to a cozy cottage, nestled in the damp woods. Picturesque and Peaceful. With 40 artists contributing (we were told) there was everything from art pieces to the practical. Many are affordable, especially for an impulse buy. For a special gift, for the house and the garden. Could... More

The shop has a wide variety of artists and styles so there is something for everyone. The pricing varied dependant on the artist and there were some pieces that were reasonably priced. The shop in in a great location off the main highway. Charming!

Visited on our last day of vacation to the Oregon Coast (we're from Texas). Loved looking at all the beautiful pottery. I bought my daughter and son-in-law mugs and myself a pottery starfish and a beautiful dish. I could have spent way more!!!!
