Off the tourist path....You MUST find this hidden gem. The quality of the ceramics is like no other and you are not charged the "tourist" prices. They also ship to USA for a reasonable fee. The "potter"is a sweet heart. Beautiful pieces.

I loved this studio. I only bought 2 oversized mugs and wish I had bought more. Their website has no English version or I would look into having more shipped to me.
