Our gallery is a community space
for art you can understand.
We display work that is beautiful and impeccably well made, yet accessible. We love functional art, because it is art that becomes part of your everyday life! We carry the work of professional potters from around the country, and host national juried Calls for Entries that anyone is welcome to apply to. The gallery is also available for community exhibits as time allows.
