Whitehead Street Pottery
Potters Charles Pearson and Tom Roeder teamed up to bring Whitehead Street Pottery gallery to life. They specialize in creating porcelain, stoneware and Raku-fired vessels. Visitors throng to the gallery to check out their latest works of art on a regular basis.
This place is a corn of copia of artistic beautification that is second to none. I would compare this place to the experience of the roller coaster at the top of that one building in Vegas where Bob Stupka threw up after riding it because he was so excited he couldn't hold his cookies down. These guys that run the place are a couple of characters with great values. Sometimes questionable people come and go after they get answers. A must see for all ages under 86. Bring your money because you will want to purchase some of the greatest pottery works in all the world.
Charles Person is the best potter I have ever seen.I have had a great experience with this artest and his work amazing.I purchased a piece for my mom and she loves it. I will purchase pottery from my uncle every time i visit Key West.
The raku fired fish and large constructed pots are fabulous and prices fair. Charles Pearson and Tim Roeder have constructed the most beatiful gallery setting in Key West. The pottery and gallery are part of a tropical garden with multiple koi ponds with pottery and handmade raku tile work showcased as part of the landscape. You won't be disappointed.
Like the first review, my wife and I were amazed at the Koi ponds adjacent to the studio. The fish were huge! The pottery showroom was very nice and well organized. We also got a tour of the studio and could see many items in their various stages of development. They have some very nice raku work and the fish heads were very unique. As a pottery myself I enjoyed talking with him about his techniques. He was very open to discussing what has worked (and not worked) for him in the past. I can't wait to try out one of his suggestions for my next raku firing. In summary, great setting, great fish, great pottery, and nice people. If you're in Key West don't miss a stop at Whitehead Street Pottery.
My husband and saw a little sign advertising pottery in the bushes on Duval St. We went hunting for the shop. As it turns out, it is a home with a studio in back and the most wonderful Koi fish ponds. We spent at least an hour with the owner talking about the fish and his pottery. The fish were so tame, you could touch them. His pottery is inspired by these beautiful fish an other elements of Asian culture. I bought several pieces and he shipped them for me. I called him when I got home and ordered more for friends for Christmas gifts. His pottery makes a wonderful souvenir from Key West.
