So nice to connect with days past. you can watch the artisans at work. and then view the finished product. Its nice to know it is not made in China! Very interesting for a family to go to.

Roomy, unassuming place off the main drag. Lots of interesting pieces, reasonable prices. Family business for over 70 years.

As many times as I have been to Hot Springs, I still put Dryden Pottery on my schedule. I have collected a number of little pots, trays, bowls, vases - each one a memory and carefully created by in-house artisans. They will let you watch.

I'm sorry you feel that way. It's hard to believe you found nothing worth seeing out of our hundreds of pieces, or our large personal private collection on display of pieces created over a 70 year period of producing pottery! I'm surprised you were not...More

They have their own unique creations. Get something signed by Cheyenne or Zack Dryden. I kept the frog and then went back and got the blue fish for a birthday present for my daughter. She loved it! Just a catch all bowl. But, too cute!
