Always love going to shearwater pottery. See sometime new every time I go. Its one of the few art forms I can afford. Worth stopping by just to look, if nothing else.

After visiting the Walter Anderson museum we headed here. Beautiful pottery! Only place you can by it except for second hand/internet. You can easily find a piece of pottery for under $40 if you just want a small keepsake.

For lovers of art pottery, Shearwater remains at the top. Signs throughout this quaint town will lead you far off the beaten path, to a place where Anderson family members continue their soul-stirring tradition. The display room alone is worth the visit. This exquisite pottery...More
