We stopped in on our last evening in Varadero and picked up a beautiful ceramic seahorse and plate. I wish it had of been day time so we could have went in to the gallery that I am seeing pictures of now. ;)

This is a professional art studio. There are high quality ceramics and other art for sale. Don't know if they allow visitors to use the wheel or take classes.
