Orcas Island Pottery, Eastsound

Located in the pristine beauty of Orcas Island in the San Juan Archipelego of Washington State, Orcas Island Pottery creates and sells some of the most original and beautiful pottery in the Northwestern United States.

Orcas Island Pottery is a favorite destination for visitors to Orcas Island. The oldest pottery in the Pacific Northwest, it is located on West Beach only 3½ miles from Eastsound, in an area of old growth cedars and Douglas fir, on a 100 foot high bluff overlooking President’s Channel.

When you turn off the main road onto the long driveway into the woods, you feel like you are entering a fairyland. As you arrive at the O.I.P. parking lot you will notice a sign for the ‘Foot Path’ that leads you down into the yard. There you will follow the pathways to discover this magical place with its beautiful gardens, fountains and, of course, lovely pottery. It’s a whimsical adventure.

  • This is a beautiful shop on a bluff overlooking the water. The pottery here is made by a number of artists, and there are beautiful cups, plates, pitchers and the like. You can also find some whimsical garden art, including funky flower faces, a smiling clam, frogs and dragonflies. There is a cute teahouse in a tree that us great for kids to explore.
  • Several artists contribute to the outstanding selection of beautiful pottery at this gallery. Very picturesque property with manicured gardens and a fantastic treehouse! If you have any interest in pottery or a non-kitsch souvenir this is highly recommended!!
  • Lots of styles in a lovely setting. Not the best quality. Kind of crude technique.
  • The have a very good selection of pottery and styles. We asked for special orders and they said yes they could make it for us. We loaded up and will be back!
  • Great vista from the front yard. Worth a visit even if you are not planning on shopping.
