Windy Ridge pots are inspired by the rich global history of folk pottery and grounded in the rolling hills of Southwestern Wisconsin. At the heart of Windy Ridge Pottery is the 30-foot long, three-chambered wood-fired climbing kiln. The unique kiln, multi-day wood firings, and extensive use of hand-processed local clay and glaze materials give Windy Ridge pots character, warmth, and depth. Joe and Christy love to create pots for everyday use and enjoyment, and they look forward to sharing their process, place, and pots with you during Clay in May.
Working together for over thirty years, Tom and Diana make a wide variety of pottery meant to be enjoyed in daily life. Their high-fired stoneware and porcelain pieces are wheel thrown as well as slab built. A rambling limestone brewery serves as an unusual home, working studio and gallery.

Bruce has been creating ceramic sculpture since 1976. His work ranges from six foot high thrown forms to 52 foot relief murals that require nine or more tons of clay.
In Bruce's firing process, utilizing sodium, the clay surface is melted, preserving the integrity of the media and making the piece very durable.
At The Mulberry Pottery, Frank Polizzi likes to celebrate the arrival of Spring with his annual Clay in May Stomp – an opportunity to enjoy the squishy, guilty pleasure of clay between the toes. This traditional method of mixing clay is a fun activity in the arts for children, parents and grandparents.
