#3 of 16 in Things to do in 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.

  • Great place...a bit off the beaten track, but well worth the effort! The setting is gorgeous as well as the pottery...  more »
  • Imaginative patterns at reasonable prices...and what a view! Off the beaten track but worth a visit if you have the time.  more »
  • It looks funky- and it is- lots of rooms to look around it and yard art that is , er, eccentric. But there are gems here too- very talented potters and here and there a great found object.  more »

  • Don’t waste time going elsewhere...this place is a destination and a store. We bought goblets, plates, and coffee mugs. Their reputation is excellent and now I know why. One more thing: they ship!!! And they pack it WELL!!
  • What a place! This spot is a little out of the way but we loved everything about the place Pottery abounds in every nook of this garden...artistic and practical, all pieces made with care. The potters we met we're knowledgeable and shared stories of their work and of the pottery shop itself. Take home a work of art! Come to sit a spell and take in the beauty that surrounds you.
  • One of our favorite spots on the island. We stop here every year to add to our growing collection of Orcas Island Pottery and to spend time admiring the views and their craft. Super friendly folks, they even ship if you need them to.
  • Lots of really nice work from many different artists. The grounds are lovely, too. We intended to stop there real quick and ended up being there for hours!
  • great stuff. We have some in our kitchen now. But, very expensive, and, don't try to ask for a deal if you buy multiples or a bunch - they ain't there for the discounts ahahahahhaa.
