Elise made some bowls for me and I love them! They're very solidly constructed and beautiful; they look like little flowers. Thanks Elise!

A good variety of hand made items. Prices were very reasonable. No pressure sales I enjoyed a brief visit with the gentleman at the register. I found several things I had not seen in pottery shops elsewhere.

I contacted Elise to inquire about a class for my family while visiting in June 2015 and she let me know that she is not teaching this year. I love her work and I've heard great things about her classes so I'm hopeful next time we're in Bryson City she'll be offering classes again!

That was so sweet - to give Pincu Pottery a 5 star review without the opportunity to take a class! I am so sorry I cannot teach this year. I have switched my focus to working on my handcrafted pottery. Thank you again for reaching out! More

I have participated on three different occasions with a group of friends. This is such a fun way to enjoy ladies night out! We all had a blast and loved our projects. Highly recommend this shop to purchase a beautiful piece of pottery or to participate and make your own. Great for family event too!

We recently visited Pinco Pottery while on a family weekend trip. We had reservations at the pottery for a private session. Elise was WONDERFUL! She was patient and fun, and went above and beyond on working with us! My children are college age and absolutely loved the experience! If visiting Bryson City, this is a must!

Read about this place on trip advisor. What a great place. My grandson(age 10) and I really enjoyed this. Elise is wonderfully nurturing. You can tell she loves to teach her love of pottery. We each made one mug and three bowls and can't wait to get our goodies in the mail!

Elise was a great teacher for our family of four. From our youngest boy of 7 to our 16 year old daughter, our family loved making pottery. Sure Bryson City is know for the white water rapids - but splashing water onto the spinning wheel of clay was JUST as fun for all of us. Elise allowed us to use... More

My mother, myself, and my 2 teenage boys scheduled a private class during our visit to the area. It was fabulous. We had never done anything like this before. Elise was patient with us:). We are looking forward to receiving our pieces. Truly a beautiful experience. The finished pieces will serve as a rich heart warming reminder of our vacation... More
