Oh my gosh, this is amazing! I am so extremely pleased with this oil ewer! The screw-on lid is just fascinating! The shipping was so fast! The packaging was thorough and done well! As soon as I had it unwrapped, I knew I would be a return customer! Please list more items, as soon as possible! Thank you, thank you!

These are so neat for any project, gift, or for sharing. I got two and they worked out great as gifts. Recommend this shop. Thank you.
Haywain Pottery; Local Clay, Local Pots in Southen Wisconsin.
Some years ago I was repairing homes for a living when the economy tanked. I took it as an opportunity to go back to school. I have always been artistic and found that making art was what made me happy. So quitting my job I headed off to school to become an art teacher. Fate struck again when our current governor came into office and teachers became the evil of the state. So, not wanting any of that business I decided to pursue getting a Bachelors in Fine Arts instead. Marrying my past building experience with my art experience, pottery became my focus.
I built my first pottery wheel from plans I found online this is the same wheel I now take with me to art shows and offer the pottery experience to anyone who wants. I have been offering this experience for free, and recently have been told by patrons that due to the budget cuts in the schools this one experience on the wheel is all the art some kids will experience all year. How sad. I feel honored and humbled to be able to offer pottery to kids and adults alike and will continue to do it at no charge.
After years of making functional pieces I just now am feeling like I am beginning to know what I am doing. I am in the studio every day and every day I am learning something new. I dig our clay right here in town and I process it at my home studio. I love the fact that when someone buys one of our pieces that they are getting a piece of us and our community.
Thank you for browsing or store. We hope that you have a great experience.
