A Photo Essay of Scargo Pottery and Art Gallery

In 1952 Harry Holl opened the studio on Cape Cod in the town of Dennis.  Today his daughters Kim and Tina Holl along with Meden Parker are the full time artists in residence.  Everything is done on the premises where they make their own clay and glazes.  I have been there many times and have bought many beautiful gifts for friends, family and myself.  My husband Gary and I were here last Sunday afternoon when the sun was just right as it peaked through the open roof and reflected off the colorful pieces.

The open air studio is surrounded by lovely gardens, ponds and trees.
