My Apology Tour

My Apology Tour

 

This wasn't supposed to happen and now the link doesn't work so you can't opt out or in.  I can rectify that--email ellisonbaypottery@gmail.com and I will fix it.

The app sent the invitation to people who already had an account and to those who opted out.

Now I'm spending my afternoon writing apology emails; it would be funny if it wasn't so embarrassing. :(

Please forgive me.  I never wanted to be one of those annoying people

Warmly

The Early Years in Ellison Bay by Liz Maltman

The Early Years in Ellison Bay  by Liz Maltman

“Perfection just does not exist,” John Dietrich of Ellison Bay Pottery explained to me when I visited his studio-gallery, where he had been producing lovely pottery works since the late 1960s. “I produce about 3,000 pieces of pottery every year. If I come up with three or four pieces that I really like, that come close to what I imagine is the best I can do, I’m happy. That is what keeps me wanting to do it again and again.”

Our Handcrafted Pottery is Easy to Live With

Our Handcrafted Pottery is Easy to Live With

 

         

One of the downsides that people tend to associate with handcrafted pottery is that it’s fragile. It’s delicate, it’s art, and it’s a hassle to hand wash. At Ellison Bay Pottery Studios, we believe pottery can be art — while still functional. Everything we produce is microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe, making it easier than ever for you to use and enjoy your pottery (and then clean it up, too) !


Unlike the carbon-copy selection of pottery at various home decor outfitters,  each of our pieces are original, custom made and one-of-a-kind. You deserve something as unique as you are and the pottery at Ellison Bay Pottery Studios creates just that.

Big corporations get tons of foot traffic, and their CEOs prosper, continuing to make millions upon millions of dollars while smaller businesses struggle under the pressure. By supporting a local business, you’re investing back into the community, and helping individuals.

We Price Things Fairly

We Price Things Fairly

We price things fairly.
A handmade pottery piece takes time, craftsmanship, and skill to ensure it is not only functional, but durable, beautiful, and can withstand the tests of time. When you pay for a $5.99 mug, you’re paying for what you get — but even more importantly, the people who deserve to get paid fairly for their labor are more than often, not.

Our pieces are priced accordingly, and you can trust that no one is being exploited or taken advantage of to create these works — rather, the artists are being compensated appropriately when you purchase from Ellison Bay Pottery Studios.
