POTTERY SHOP NAMED FOR STRAY PUP Print E-mail
June 23, 2000 11:00 pm

People may find many things are big and heavy at Najas Pottery shop in Harbor, including the mascot, a 250-pound dog named Naja.

No one should be scared though as Naja appears to be friendly, just like his masters and shop owners Mike and Joan Hebert, who named the business after him.

The Heberts came to Brookings from Minneapolis. It was there that they found an abandoned pup in the garbage. They adopted the dog, who was named by their daughter, who provided part of her bed for Naja to sleep.

About the same time the Heberts adopted Naja, Mike was in an accident in the truck he drove cross-country. He decided to retire.

Because Joan grew up in Roseburg, they came to Oregon on vacations, including the coast. They chose to move here.

We have everything here, Mike Hebert said of the mountains, oceans and rivers.

After three years of planning to open a pottery shop, their plans became a reality.

The shop, located at 15633 Highway 101 next to Great American Smokehouse, offers all handmade pottery, Hebert said. The stock includes everything from big items to small including religious statues, handmade dishes, cups, fireplaces and more.

Not everything is pottery. There also is a small line of wooden windmills made by a woodworker in Hiouchi, Hebert said.

His pottery inventory comes from eight potters from Grants Pass to Mount St. Helens, Hebert said.

Najas Pottery is open everyday except Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. For information, call (541) 412-7056.
