I was very excited about touring Wassi Pottery, particularly after watching their video and looking at their web site. I am not sure how long their retail outlet/studio has been closed, but it is no longer open. A few other shops in the area appear to have a little of their remaining inventory on consignment.

I so wanted to go here and finally convinced my husband to drive me over from where we were staying in Long Bay in Portland parish. Unfortunately, the web site is non-functional as is the phone line or answereing machine. Oh wait, they don't have a machine with a recording of hours of operation. I find this a sad way... More

We bought some small vases and a small framed painting. The prices are very reasonable for the quality, the staff friendly and helpful. Our purchases were wrapped expertly and all... More

Wassi is a pottery factory where the owners offer artists a chance to learn an art and create their pieces. Now located in the middle of Ocho Rios Wassi offers both extremely commercial potteries which are only a souvenir - Not much artistic value, but at least it is made in Jamaica and not in China or Bengladesh - and...

The pottery is fantastic! All of it is priced in U S Dollars; however, when we went to pay, they wanted to "convert it to Jamiacan dollars"..of course at a non-standard rate. When we all refused to complete our purchases (there were three of us making purchases in our group) their "American" machine suddenly was working again. They will make... More
