Gallery & Studio hours: 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday, and gladly by appointment. While not officially open on Saturdays, it's not unusual to find the studio working on Saturdays. If making a special trip, please call ahead. There are times when the studio is closed, exhibiting elsewhere, picking up supplies or just "gone fishing."

Visit the studio gallery to see catalog items, pots in the Online Gallery and an assortment of various inspirations! The studio is the best place to customize your dinnerware, where you can mix and match an array of decorative motifs, order a custom piece or set up a wedding registry.
