Carolina Clay Gallery at Freshfields Village has one of the largest collections of hand-built pottery and clay sculpture in South Carolina. The gallery features select North and South Carolina potters, many of whom are nationally recognized. These artists are continuing an art movement inspired by local tradition, but their work is new, innovative, and among the most beautiful in the world. Find here a quirky gift to make someone smile or something to dazzle a serious art collector. All of the pottery is handmade and one-of-a-kind: thrown, slabbed, designed, glazed, and fired in the Carolinas. The Gallery also carries blown glass and other crafts.


The gallery has a large selection of whimsical copper and brass human size frogs. Each frog is handcrafted by Charles and Zan Smith of Johns Island, SC. These frogs can be left outside in all weather conditions and can be found living in Botanical Gardens, zoos, and home gardens across the world.


Carolina Clay is unlike any other pottery gallery you have visited, offering a unique shopping experience with lively décor and beautiful displays. The wide selection of original pottery is perfect for home display, art collections, functional use, or gift giving.
