About

We try to make everything by hand, we mean everything!

We work in the Old City Hall in downtown Pocahontas, the building was built in 1939 and is perfect for an art studio as it includes the old jail which is great for glassblowing and pottery. We renovated the building doing all the work ourselves, only hiring a plumber to run a waterline from the meter to the building.
Here are some of the things we make by hand:
Stoneware Pottery, Blown Glass, Lampwork Beads, Jewlery, Copper work, Candles, Soap, Knitting, Recycled wine bottles in many forms, the list goes on. We really love handmade!!! Our store has been around for 14 years now and we keep growing. Our brick and mortar store (not on Etsy) also features over 20 local artists.
