Owner Shellie sells her hand-thrown pottery from this shop along the Richardson Highway.

She makes her pottery with high-fire clay—and every piece is nicely safe for food, the microwave, the oven and dishwasher. If she’s happens not to be home when you stop by, the door is open, and you can buy items on the honor system (just leave the amount of money for the piece that you purchase).

Not only does this stop offer unique keepsakes of your trip to Alaska, but you get a nice chance to meet and talk with a local who calls this part of the state home.
