Welcome to Studio Poole. Dedicated to keeping the legacy of Poole Pottery on the quay, our studio and retail outlet is located in the new building where the original pottery stood. If you're lucky, you may spot some of the original Poole Pottery paintresses and master potter in our In-house Studio.

In our Collector's Corner, you can find everything Poole Pottery, from current productions to Discontinued Tableware. If you're looking to expand your collection or replace a broken item, and can't find that one specific pattern, we produce quality, handcrafted, tribute reproductions of Discontinued Poole Pottery ranges in our studio, and even craft bespoke items to order. All vases purchased from our studio will be signed by the artists.

In our store you will also find Vintage Collectables and a whole range of gift ideas from other leading manufacturers, such as: John Beswick, Denby, Dartington Crystal, Quail Ceramics, Old Tupton, Lesser & Pavey, Jellycats, (to name but a few).

 If you're looking for a quick snack while you enjoy the scenery, our sweet treats section is for you, selling speciality fudge, local chutneys, and Purbeck Icecream. Or find something to spark the imagination in our Model Railway and Crafts section.

If that wasn’t enough, our Have-A-Go Experience offers you the chance to paint your own ceramic masterpiece from our wide selection of bisque animals and fantasy creatures, as well as seasonal exclusive options. This experience is perfect for family days out, Birthday parties, weekend meetups, and Women’s Institute/ Stag/ Hen Do/ evening parties.
