BULLS BAY OYRO

Oliver Thames

When Made in the South Award winner Oliver Thames couldn’t find the perfect cooker for his Lowcountry-style oyster roasts, he decided to build his own. Inspired by his childhood, Thames brings the traditional open wood fire into the modern era with an eye-catching, game-changing cooker.

Gallery Hours
Stop by the Artist Cottage between 10AM–12PM Tuesday–Friday to chat with the artist and learn the process of his craft.
