  • My husband and I did the make-your-own mug experience and it was AWESOME! Summer, the instructor, did a fantastic job of teaching us why we were doing things and guiding us through the practice piece. On our final product piece of clay, she found the perfect balance of helping us and letting us do it on our own to ensure that we had a final piece that would look great and function as it should but still be our own custom masterpiece. Five stars all around!! One of our favorite memories from our anniversary trip and we can't wait to get our mugs in a couple months :)
  • I had the pleasure of stopping by this store while in town for a wedding over Labor Day weekend. Although most of the artisans in the A&CC were closed on Saturday at 5:30 p.m., this fabulous shop was open. Mike was very friendly and answered any questions I and my MIL had, and I was happy to leave with a beautiful handmade vessel. Definitely recommend.
  • Very impressed with this place. They worked us in so we would be able to do a class before traveling back home. Very fun family thing to do together. Everyone there was very friendly. Will definitely go back sometime. Can't wait to see the finished products.
  • We had a great time for our first pottery experience (ever) at Fowler’s! We would definitely go again if in the area! Everyone was so friendly! Can’t wait to see the finished product
  • I have been a long time follower of Mike. Was recently in Gatlinburg and went in to store. I couldn't have been more excited to see who I found. Mike and Brenda. My husband and I got the most heart warming welcome! I highly recommend everyone to stop in say hello and look at all the beautiful pottery pieces. You will not be disappointed.
