Diane and John are simply the best! The quality of their pottery is so wonderful, and they always have a huge selection. Simply cannot say enough about this Gallery, and the welcoming environment. Its at least an annual visit for me.

...and I wasn't disappointed. We arrived just as they were taking pieces from the kiln. Staff spent time with us explaining the entire process of creating a piece. The gallery was nicely staged and I left with a piece for my collection from my travels.
