Welcome to Yellow Cottage Studios, Pottery Studio and Gallery in Poteau OK
Yellow Cottage Studios is the playground for me, Potter and artist  Dani Montoya. It is located on the main drag in a small town in Southeastern Oklahoma.

The quote above really spoke to me the first time I read it, that is why it has such a prominent place on my site. “Art” takes on many forms and it is whatever creative avenue that leads you. Perhaps it’s not drawing or painting or pottery, but maybe it’s found in cooking, or sewing, or scrapebooking. Whatever your joy is, is your “Art”. Indulge yourself and dust everyday life off!

Yellow Cottage Studios is really three studios for the three creative passions in my life.

Pottery Studio- This is my #1 passion and the one thing I love doing more that all the others. Dani at her pottery wheelI love throwing on the potter’s wheel. Taking a lump of wet clay and transforming it between my hands is very fulfilling. My purpose is to make functional pieces that can be used and enjoyed by everyone. Currently, I am experimenting with bright colors, beautiful, crazy color combinations, and Sgraffito.

Gourd Art Studio- Gourds are an amazing canvas. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors so you never really know what you have to work with until you clean the dirt off. My style is basically southwestern, with a Native American flare. On any one piece you might find that I carved, wood burned, weaved and dyed it.

Reiki Studio- Although Reiki is not a creative passion it is one that I hold near and dear to my heart. Reiki is a healing practice. Along with Reiki I also offer an Essential Oil Massage, Essential Touch. You can learn more about Reiki, Crystal Healing and Essential Oils at www.danimontoya.net

You are welcome to stop in and watch!

Painting Party- Bessie
Jun 6 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Painting Party- Bessie @ Yellow Cottage Studios | Poteau | Oklahoma | United States


Farmhouse style is a popular trend and our cow, Bessie, is quite the trendsetter. Her soulful eyes would look so welcoming hanging in a kitchen or entryway.

Anyone can paint a masterpiece at a painting party.  It’s like paint by numbers for adults only instead of numbers you get step-by-step instructions. Can’t draw a straight line either. No worries… we use patterns!!

Its a wonderful night out, doing something fun and creative. Won’t you join us?

Seating is limited so you must let us know if you would like to come!
