Studio potter, Robin Reynolds, who has worked in clay for over 35 years, operates Dacotah Clayworks.  She moved back to her home state of North Daktoa from Bellingham, WA, in 1996 to work entirely with native North Dakota clay.  Studio tours are available to show you how she manufactures local Hebron clay into a material suitable for pottery making.  The sales gallery is located in the old Texaco bay garage office.  Just ring the doorbell and let yourself into the shop during business hours, Monday - Saturday, 9 am to 6 pm, and Sunday from 12 noon to 6 pm, or call 701-878-4060.

Hebron clay is attractive, butter-colored clay, which Robin makes into folk-art stye pottery.  She finishes the ware with rustic glazes and stains made from other North Dakota clays.  Often asked why she labors at making indigenous clay, her answer is "everything I needed was underfoot, not at the clay store!"

Reynolds is an adjunct Instructor of Art at Dickinson State University.  She offers workshps, Raku firings, and tour group demonstrations at Dacotah Clayworks and is an Artist-in-Residence with the North Dakota Council for the Arts.
