Allamakee Woodfired Pottery

"At Allamakee Wood-Fired Pottery we produce simple, functional pottery for everyday use in your home and garden.

We have been inspired by folk traditions from all over the world, most notably the Orient, England and the southern US.  These vastly different pots seem to have a common spirit of honesty and strength that we try to instill in our own pots.  We do not, however, try to recreate what has already been done, but rather create a continuity where our loose interpretations of these old forms are fired side by side with what some people would consider less traditional shapes."  ~Nate and Hallie Evans

"Pottery is meant to be enjoyed—both on a visual and tactile level. It should catch your eye on a table and should feel satisfying when you pick it up. I want my pottery to be the piece you return to over and over again and enjoy more and more each time you use it."   ~Kerry Brooks
