Mainly pits, paintings and jewellery, with some easily affordable items as well as pricier pieces: all interesting, and a good range of makers and prices. There's some exciting furniture and smaller ornamental pieces too. It's hard not to find something you love here, and the owner is engaging and knowledgable.

Some wonderful pieces of work for sale, alongside garden pots. Reasonable prices too but also high prices for those collectable pieces. Different mediums combined with ceramics making some of the work quite unique. Friendly owner and no pressure to buy - viewing only is OK.

Hand made pottery items both from the on-site pottery (you can see him at work) and from selected other craftspeople. Some really beautiful items, I wasn't in the market for purchases at the time however items would make both practical presents and showstopper display ones.

Great quality pottery, with added extras for presents. Pottery is interesting and slightly different from the norm. We have bought a number of gifts for ourselves and family. No one has ever been disappointed

This was a real find in amongst all the bookshops. A spacious gallery with a very eclectic range of studio pottery and terracotta plant ware (which I think are made by the owner). Nicely laid out with a very good range of style and prices. I came away with a lovely footed berry bowl. The owner is very knowledgeable and... More

Beautifully crafted frost-proof pottery with refined and rustic touches, moulded from the red clay of the Welsh borders, with added stoneware for strength displayed alongside the other quality craft work.

A beautiful gallery off the main drag, definitely worth a visit. A fantastic selection of British ceramics, jewellery and some lovely prints. Very friendly and knowledgeable owner who has a workshop attached to the gallery where he makes gorgeous Terracotta pots, I bought several! I'll be back for more!

We call in every time we are in Hay, mainly to browse and enjoy the exhibits. This time we couldn't resist buying a couple of pieces even though we looked and admired and admired and looked and then walked away saying we couldn't decide and would have a coffee and come back!
