We just purchased our 9th piece from the Salvaterra Pottery collection. All are beautiful and high quality items. We have never had a chip or crack. Customer service is outstanding. Sue just processed a rush custom order for us, just in time for my wife's birthday. I recommend Salvaterra Pottery with enthusiasm.

Absolutely the best pottery shop I’ve ever visited! My mother in law wanted to see some functional pottery pieces while she was in town. I am so glad we ventured out to weaverville to this place! Sue was incredibly welcoming and friendly! Her pieces are beautiful! We cannot wait to visit again and buy some more items! Bonus….her “grand dog” Cookie was the cutest pup ever!
