This place is part museum, part shop, and all gorgeous. Very impressive range of pottery styles available. The staff speak very little English, but are incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Trevor, thank you so much for your opinion! I hope your pot arrived safely to California! And here a little tip: your black pottery pieces will preserve better if you rub them gently with some olive oil twice a year :)
