Beautiful outside and in

This spectacular modern gallery at first seems incongruous in the hilltop location over the Lot valley, but it’s bold “Frank Gehry-inspired” architecture soon wins you over.
The extremely knowledgable and charming guide (son of the founders, and also potter) made the visit even more fascinating.
I was reluctant to visit at first, but was extremely happy to have been persuaded by the friends we were travelling with. We all bought lovely pottery.

A really nice art space

A really good place to spend an hour or so. Lovely building / space to wander around to look at the exhibits and possibly purchase a gift or something for home. All price points accommodated. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lovely views looking out from the the building .

Worth visiting for the views alone
Jun 2019 • Couples
However as well as those views there is an amazing pottery/gallery/shop encased in a futuristic building. A wonderful place to browse with no pressure to buy. Well worth a visit.

What an amazing place
Jul 2019 • Family
We timed our visit for the Tuesday morning demonstration given by Suzy, with her husband, Nigel, greeting us as we entered. This place truly vaut le voyage: for the spectacular art, the architecture, the stunning view, but above all for the people.. Thank you.

Unexpected futuristic pottery
Jul 2016 • Family
We were recommended to visit this attraction and was worth the journey. Surprising modern architecture and made very welcome by founder and husband of Suzy who was a real source of knowledge about the area and his own transition to adopting France as his home
Some really interesting pottery and bought a mixture of old and new

Excellent panoramic position with a wonderful selection of gifts and household items to view and purchase
May 2016 • Couples
The building itself is a work of art , the view from outside fantastic and inside a selection of reasonably priced high quality household items both functional and decorative from various artists . Well worth a visit. What a pity there is no coffee shop.

Stunning location and pottery
Sep 2015 • Family
The drive up into the hills of Le Fel affords wonderful views of the surrounding area. The gallery is welcoming and the staff are informative and able to supply written details of each of the artists whose work is displayed. There is a broad range of work and in my experience, based on numerous visits, something for everyone. The items are individually crafted and therefore unique and the prices reflect this. We always thoroughly enjoy a visit to Du Don and the staff are very experienced at packaging items intended for long journeys or flights. Well worth a visit.

A European Ceramic Pole of Excellence

If you're anywhere near the upper reaches of the Lot, don't miss the Gallery du Don, a spectacular building with wonderful views and wonderful contents if you like pottery. Over the years we have accumulated a fine collection of plates, mugs and cooking containers. Apart from the local pottery, which is very classy and a cut above most of the competition in this neck of the woods, there are shows of the work from distinguished potters from all over the world. Every year there is a big sale of slightly damaged or imperfect pots and end-of-line items - usually at the end of July or beginning of August on a Saturday and Sunday - which is very well-attended, and where bargains are to be had. An outstanding attraction!

Wonderful pottery with amazing views
Oct 2014 • Couples
The range of pottery on show and for sale is wide ranging. Some of it is expensive but that reflects the individual design, effort and use of materials and it's so good to see the work of so many different artists.

Beautiful inside and out
Nov 2013 • Couples
Although this gallery is tucked up in a small mountain town, it is worth the trip. Not only are there beautiful views from the outside, the pottery is gorgeous. Several artists work on display. Beautiful every day pieces as well as the one of a kind creations. There is jewelry as well. Owners speak English. They will ship to your home.
