What is the Western Wisconsin Pottery Tour?
It is a self-guided tour hosted by potters from Western Wisconsin who open up their studios to the public for viewing and purchasing fine handmade pots. This is an opportunity to meet the potters in a fun and relaxing setting. The studios can be visited in any order, and they are geographically close enough to one another to into a one day outing.
The tour starts just over the Minnesota border and extends into Western Wisconsin. Visitors will find fine one-of-a-kind hand made pots and meet the artists in their studios, where they can get an inside look into the workings of studios. Participating artists include Jan McKeachie-Johnston, Randy Johnston, S. C. Rolf, Zac Spates, Mark Pharis & Wayne Branum.
