Kinnakeet Clay – Studio & Showroom is proof that great things can come in small packages. In 2011, after eight years of traveling to art shows, I made a decision to stay home and open a shop to showcase my work. Where better than right here in my home village of Avon (historically known by the old Indian name, Kinnakeet)? With the help of my good friend, the super-creative Beth Hayes, I set about creating a comfy and welcoming store. Our goal is to catch your breath as you walk through the door. We want you to love to stay and explore, to get excited about the layers of high-quality, handmade treasures and to feel at home in our ‘salt-crusted, vintage beach cottage’ inspired shop.

Once inside Kinnakeet Clay, you will find Beth or me working on some of our smaller clay items in the tiny studio portion of the shop. More importantly, you will discover a stellar collection of local and regional pottery (including my own decorative and functional pieces), art and fine craft. We aim to create a ‘shopping oasis’ with a strong focus on a fun shopping experience.
