This is the fourth egg beater bowl I've purchased, love them. They're a great size, and I love the pour spout.

Who would have thought up in the woods...

Back in 1977, we stumbled upon an empty, abandoned brick schoolhouse in northern Wisconsin and instantly fell in love with it. Our relatives thought we'd lost our minds when we bought it and started plans for a home and a gallery.

Fast forward to now. We've raised two daughters, made a living with our artwork, grown huge gardens, done lots of home improvement projects and we're still going strong.

Now Etsy has become a great addition to our gallery sales that helps us through the long Wisconsin winters!

    I make the "slab" pots as well as do most of the retailing. We sell our own work as well as that of 25+ other regional artists at our rural schoolhouse gallery. Otherwise, I love to travel, garden, read and cook.
