Roomy, unassuming place off the main drag. Lots of interesting pieces, reasonable prices. Family business for over 70 years.

As many times as I have been to Hot Springs, I still put Dryden Pottery on my schedule. I have collected a number of little pots, trays, bowls, vases - each one a memory and carefully created by in-house artisans. They will let you watch.

They have their own unique creations. Get something signed by Cheyenne or Zack Dryden. I kept the frog and then went back and got the blue fish for a birthday present for my daughter. She loved it! Just a catch all bowl. But, too cute!
