Plunge into the heart of the Buffalo Wilderness. Paddle the whitewater through the bluffs on America’s First National River. Warm up to the view from your hot tub on the deck of a mountain cabin.  Hike through Lost Valley or follow the bluff trail to the swimming hole at Steel Creek.

Osage Clayworks

Osage Clayworks is located in the Stamps Store in Osage, Arkansas, an hour east of Fayetteville and 30 minutes north of Ponca. We make and sell handmade pottery. Amy, Newt, Family and Friends create functional and decorative pottery that is lead free, microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe.

Our store was constructed in 1901, and was a general mercantile store until 1989.  Filled with its original fixtures and artifacts, the store is a treasure to explore. Newt and Amy want to share the joy of making pottery and the unique history of Osage with you. We hope to see you soon.
