The pottery here is magnificent but very expensive. Unfortunately, no tour was available today so we just perused the museum pieces and the gallery. There was lots of information to read and the kiln to see.More

From pottery history and manufacturing techniques to modern art for purchase, a very interesting and enjoyable afternoon out... especially if the weather is not cooperating with other local sightseeing.
