If you are into pottery, I suggest Earthworks Pottery. They make some really beautiful items from mugs to plates to toothbrush holders, vases, water pitchers, just to name a few.
Bill Grace has some sculptures that are made form coral and rock among other things that many people enjoy. (not sure where to find his items)
Jill Walker, while not born in Barbados, is widely known for her local art (she has been here long enough to be considered a Bajan). Her paintings and prints come not only in picture form but also on Placemats, among other things. Jill Walker prints can be found at any Best of Barbados Shop (there is one in the cruise terminal)
You might want to visit Zemicon Gallary (not sure when they are open) which is on Hincks Street not to far from the Cruise Terminal if you are looking for paintings.
Pelican Village is just beyond the main gates and it's mostly local arts and crafts. Earthworks is located off of Shop Hill in St. Thomas. Any taxi driver can get you there, no problem. They have their workshop/shop and The Potters house, which also displays and sells some other local aritists things. There is a place to have lunch upstairs and a batik artist studio and sales area downstairs.
