Silver Canyon Pottery was founded in 1988 by Island local Robin Cassidy, who is renowned for her work in restoring the tiles of downtown Avalon, which were famously produced on the island during the 20s and 30s. Situated in Pebbly Beach, the studio is located in the former Catalina Pottery and Tile factory, which produced a broad range of ceramic works including dinnerware, figurines and decorative tile between 1928 and 1939.
Silver Canyon Pottery continues the tradition by creating many of the tiles used in the restoration of historical installations throughout the island town. Guests can visit the pottery studio and discover how the beautiful products are made on popular studio tours, which also explore the fascinating history of Catalina Brick, Pottery, and Tile. Budding artists can learn all the tricks of the trade when it comes to making pottery, following instruction from local artists, learning how to mold, throw and fire their own creations. An extensive library features a range of books about Catalina that visitors can enjoy at their leisure on the colorful studio deck overlooking the sea.
