Shell Lake, Wisconsin 1184 Sales On Etsy since 2009

5 out of 5 stars (380)

Announcement   After nearly forty years of creating pottery and running our large gallery, we are putting Brickyard up for sale. There is LOTS of information describing the home and building at Brickyard online at www.brickyardpottery.com/for-sale

As a result of our potential sale, we are unable to list as many items on Etsy. We just haven't been able to keep up with production after announcing our retirement. Our apologies if you are unable to find what you are looking for!

Brian and I established Brickyard Pottery in the historic, rural Brickyard Schoolhouse in 1980, and have been making pots and running our gallery ever since.

With safe, lead-free glazes, all of our pots are dishwasher and microwave safe. They are oven-safe as well if heated and cooled gradually. They are made for everyday use!

See an item in one glaze, but would like another? Just let me know and I may have just what you want.

One of our specialties is handmade custom dinnerware. We work with our customers to produce sets of dinnerware that will be unlike any other. We do many wedding gift registries for dinnerware and accessories. Just get in touch and we can work out the details.

I typically ship the day I receive an order, or the next day if the order comes in after 2:00 p.m. I almost always ship priority mail, but may need to use parcel post for larger pieces. Ordering multiple pieces? I will refund the shipping overcharges to you.

For nearly forty years we have been promoting and selling other artists' work in our gallery as well as our own. "Hand-made" is what our lives have been all about! Check out our gallery at our website: www.brickyardpottery.com or "like" us on Facebook at Brickyard Pottery

About

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!
