About Us

Marcie & Jerry Saywell are the proprietors of Saywell’s. Marcie, a potter, and Jerry, a refugee from the corporate world, opened Saywell’s Gallery in Wakefield, Rhode Island, on April Fool’s Day, 1987. We have been open for business on Wakefield’s Main Street since that day, and moved into the historic Kenyon’s Department Store Building in 2003.

Wakefield is one of the 14 villages which make up the town of South Kingstown, Rhode Island. We are on the west side of Narragansett Bay, across from Newport; in an area we natives call South County. A very special part of the planet, South County offers fine beaches, golf, equestrian activities, galleries, museums, live theater, classical music festivals, art fairs, seafood festivals, nature conservancies – just about all you could ask for to provide a great place to live, work and visit. Kingston, one of our other South Kingstown villages, is home to the University of Rhode Island.

Since opening, we have been fortunate to develop a loyal following of customers who appreciate the quality of craftsmanship in the products of the hundreds of artisans we represent. We hope this website adds to the convenience of being a valued friend and customer.

The items we present to you on our website are either limited production or One-of-a-Kind pieces. The limited production pieces may vary somewhat from the image shown; they show the touch of the human hand. One-of-a-Kind pieces shown are exactly the item you will receive when purchasing.

For any information you may want, just e-mail us.

Thanks for stopping by!
