  • John Dietrich, the potter in "Ellison Bay Pottery", taught me to throw on the wheel in the early 1970's at Abe Cohen's legendary "Potter's Wheel" in Milwaukee. John's was good then. Now he's been at it for 50 years and he is the master of his craft. His work excels in subtle decoration and well executed form. I look at the pieces we bought from him every day and see something new to enjoy. It's possible that my training at John's hand skews my judgement, and indeed, I do think that that does inform my enjoyment, but I also think anyone can see the high value in his work at some level. If you're headed for Door County, Wisconsin, stop at the Ellison Bay Pottery and see what you think.
