Lula and Glenn’s pottery is better than what you will find in stores. I have owned a pie plate for almost 20 years and it makes a beautiful pie. Take time to chat with Lula in her store. She is wonderful!!

I love my pottery from Bolick Pottery. My fiancé and I decided to forgo the traditional china patterns and get our dishes from the pottery place. We love them and can't wait to continually add pieces to the collection.

Bolick's does 2 kiln openings per year. In the spring, there are many bands, pintos and corn bread, tractor and horse rides. It's a relaxing way to spend some time with family and friends.
