Midwest Living Review

Beth Schatz Kaylor
This tiny pottery shop housed in an old Texaco station may not have a huge selection of pieces, but its artsy, eclectic vibe makes it worth the stop.

The tiny town of Hebron, just a mile off of Interstate 94, is a proud blue-collar town known for its brickmaking. Robin Reynolds uses that same brickmaking clay harvested from the land around Hebron, but instead creates simple, earnest pieces of pottery that carry a strong sense of place. Located on the edge of town, near cows quietly grazing with the song of meadowlarks audible from the gravel parking lot, the pottery selection at Dacotah Clayworks is modest with earth-toned pieces that are mostly small mugs, plates, and vases. A small selection of art in other mediums and jewelry is available as well. The artist is happy to talk to visitors about her art and invites them to learn more about the pottery making process. Classes can also be arranged for small groups by special request. Prairie Fire Pottery in Beach, ND may still be the premiere pottery destination in North Dakota; however, Dacotah Clayworks is worth stopping for, if only to see an artist creating her art from the same clay as the local brickmakers, producing simple pieces that reflect a strong spirit of place in the heart of North Dakota.
