Mike, the owner, is a great guy! We met him while in Gatlinburg, TN at the Sugarland's Mountain Fest where he had a booth set up doing demonstrations. Very personable and interactive answering all of our questions and just having general conversation.

We went the next day to check out his shop, and he has absolutely beautiful and unique pieces! Upon finding out that they had some openings for the pottery class they offer I signed up for the next class available. I'm so happy I did! Meg, the instructor, was so fun and great to learn from! She's really awesome, just a true gem of a person!

I was able to make a coffee cup during the class and then picked out the glaze for which it will be dipped and fired in. I can't wait to get my souvenir that Meg helped me make with my own hands! It's a memory I'll always have.

We saw Mike again at the shop and he remembered us from the festival! We talked some more, you can really tell he's passionate about what he does! We will definitely go back when we visit Gatlinburg again to buy some of his pieces for the house and maybe do another class!

My husband and I first did a class
last October while on our honeymoon and each made a mug. We loved it so much, we went back the other day and were able to create a new piece. My husband made a bowl and I made a vase. Everyone there is so kind and welcoming! We have made this a tradition, every time we go to Gatlinburg now, we will make our own pottery!

Mike Fowler the owner greeted us. He was very nice and knowledgeable. We had an appointment for a class and were "asked what do you want to make and what glaze do you want?" Which I wasn't expecting since I figured it was going to be very generic but it wasn't. We had a great instructor that understood I was a total novice. Once you make what you want, (cup, mug, small bowl or small container) they will do all the other steps and ship the final product in about 8 wks. If you need items for gifting they have pieces for sale too. A very enjoyable experience.

My family of three (2 adults and one 10 year old) loved the pottery class. Meg is a great teacher. She knows how to have fun!
