A Visit to Dryden Pottery


Dryden’s is a four-generation family business. It was founded in Kansas by Alan James Dryden in 1946. Ten years later he relocated

“My grandfather started it [the business] in ‘46 but we started in Kansas and we moved over here,” said Cheyenne. “We get people who come in maybe they have heard about us and maybe they haven’t.” Regardless of how a person comes to find themselves at the shop ( the colorful mural that wraps around the outside of the shop enticed me to stop in that day), the Drydens are happy to share their knowledge of the business and the art form.
