Reviewed 29 July 2016 via mobile

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 we entered and then went back to working at the back of the shop. I felt that was very appropriate for a workshop/store where many enter just to look.

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.

A personalized anniversary or wedding plate in the Pottery window caught our attention when we walked down the street so we went in to have a look around. If you are looking for a unique gift for a wedding or especially a wedding annversary for the couple that has everything, this would be the place. We enjoyed talking with Pam Birdsall and even though we only bought a pair of drop marbled earrings, she was very nice and explained a lot about their craft and their studio.

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.
