El Dorado Pottery


El Dorado Pottery is situated in the Eldorado and Woolshed Valley region of the Rural City of Wangaratta and is a part of the High Country Tourist Region.

The mud brick pottery studio was built in 1975 and has been a working business up until 2013. It is now a hobby for the third generation potter Howard Phillips but it still manages to keep him quite busy. Howard produces a colourful variety of wares ranging from household items to decorative ware. On a visit to the studio you might see him in action throwing, glazing or firing; or you might enjoy a chat with him about his family background in pottery while checking out the work areas.

Take time to look through the studio pieces in the display room and you might discover just the right thing for yourself or as gift for someone.
