What others say about us

“If there is a right way to do a gallery, they did it. In a zen like atmosphere you’ll find space between the beautiful pieces to rest your eyes. Nothing cluttered or jammed. The unique set up features the workspace of Mark, the ceramic artist, right there for all to see how magic is created. Functional art at its finest. The walls are adorned with the gorgeous and skillful photography of Sarah. Her images reflect a unique vision of the stillness in nature. Stepping away from the hustle and buzz of the busy street life into the serenity of this little jewel gallery, truly made my day.”

“Beautiful pottery and photography. Love the artists and their work!”

“Just visited! Beautiful work! The photographs are amazing! The pottery, artistic, creative. Please do yourself a favor and stop by. Easy parking on White Street across from Fausto’s. Thanks, Sarah!”
