The cookie stamps are very interesting -- I only bought one, but may order more online. They also have some lovely jewelry. The owner was very friendly and willing to talk, explaining their work and also talking about Mahone Bay. I... More

Stopped by the shop for potential xmas gifts and to check out their pottery as I enjoy the art. Their shop is in back and they sell very attractive mottled blue and green patterned bowls and mugs. They also have a line of what appears to be custom crystal wine glasses and very distinctive jewelry. They appear to do custom... More

We stopped in when we were in Mahone Bay and had the pleasure of talking with both of the owners when we stopped. They make the pottery right on site and have quite a few different pottery items for births and weddings. They do excellent work. They will ship anywhere you want. If you are looking for a birth gift... More

Located on NS 3 in the heart of Mahone Bay directly across from Amos Pewter (which makes a nice stop as well and they have store parking). These artists have a nice variety of pieces made from local clay. We bought a couple of the cookie stamps. Owners very friendly.

There are many quaint shops in Mahone Bay, but this one should not be missed. The quality of the pottery is outstanding and the prices are very reasonable. I was surprised to find such lovely jewelry in the shop. It appears to be one of the main crafts produced by the artists. The proprietor came out to greet us when... More

We came for the Santa Festival and enjoyed the faces on the santos outside. I really like this potter as the quality and uniqueness of each piece is lovingly made.

Beautiful work, lovely shop, friendly artisans. This place has been a long time pleasure of mine to visit. I have always admired the commemorative plates created by both artist potters as per your desire! Now Birdsall is producing some lovely original design pottery jewellery. If yo go to Mahone Bay be sure to visit.

This is a wonderful little store on the main street. There is wide variety of pottery items for sale - from plates to beautiful jewellery and even some attractive cookie molds (with recipes). The owner was very helpful and took the time to explain how some of the jewellery was made - very informative. The prices range from reasonable to... More

What I don't know about pottery could fill up a lot of space. That doesn't mean that I don't appreciate the enthusiasm of someone who really does know it and is more than pleased to take some time to describe and explain his work for me.
