Peter Skoro

INFLUENCEDBY HIS EXPERIENCE in graphic design and especially to typography, Pete has an affection for shape, form, and composition which are always goals whether the pot is a traditional tableware style or a more decorative piece. He is conscious of the energy a shape can contain by its form, every pot has a personality and purpose of it's own and is an acknowledgment of those qualities.



Deanna Eckels

Each piece of Deanna's pottery is a work of art, beautiful, functional and one of a kind. Deanna creates her glazes from scratch and throws or hand builds each piece.

The designs are unique. Her work is inspired by the natural surroundings of the Bayfield peninsula of Wisconsin on rustic Lake Superior, but speaks to many settings for home decoration or everyday use. As a second generation potter, her artwork is the product of a lifetime working in clay. Her work is in homes across the United States and around the world.

Wisconsin Pottery inspired by regional beauty.

Welcome to Eckels Pottery where you'll find pots of every description in both stoneware and porcelain clay bodies. We've been offering a variety of original and functional designed for everyday use for over fifty years.
