You can see potters take their work for a spin, or take a long stroll down memory lane, in Wisconsin
There’s something old and something new in a pair of Wisconsin towns, where a marriage of memories and merchandise come together under one roof, and artists wed their talents with lumps of earth for a perfect union of clay and creativity.
As I drove down a wooded Wisconsin lane to Mark Skudlarek’s home studio tucked away in the trees, it reminded me of my travels to North Carolina.
It’s a fitting place for a pottery studio with a wood-fired kiln.
Cambridge Wood-Fired Pottery was the first stop on my visit to Cambridge and Columbus, and I was fortunate to find Skudlarek at his studio packaging some of his merchandise. He was preparing for a trip out-of-state.
