They have many unique items. You can also take pottery lessons and they will fire. They live and have their business in Salida.

We are keen collectors of hand thrown pots, so this was a great place to find during our stay in Salida. Lots of potters showing their work here and at very decent prices. I found something for my husband's birthday and it has travelled home in one piece! If you like pots - you should definitely call in!

We enjoyed our visit to this pottery gallery. The staff was very friendly, and the pieces in the gallery made by Mary Jursinovic were particularly unique and lovely.

My sister in law and I stopped in to browse at the Maverick Potter on a hot Friday afternoon. I was curious about their "decorate your own" options and the woman at the register was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Unfinished pieces are hand thrown and of much better quality than what I usually find at similar places. Maverick Potter... More

A wonderful variety of work from potters and clay artists. Bungled Jungle has some of their crazy fun work here in case their shop isn't open around the corner. People who work here are extremely helpful and nice.

Several artists make up a good variety of pottery. Have some unique pieces myself and use everyone of them. Love my mini colander.

Had a visit with a friend. All the pottery was beautiful, a bit conventional for my taste, but lovely. There was a nice variety and everything was displayed very well.
