There are several new shopping experiences at WMODA to benefit the museum’s educational programs. Our revamped shop has a beautiful selection of gifts, including jewelry, tea china, glass art, and books.

Local Artists

Ceramic Art

Her hand-made collection of brie bakers and omelet makers are food, dishwasher and microwave safe. Alyssa enjoys knowing that her functional art can be treasured and enjoyed through everyday use.
