Deanna Eckels

Each piece of Deanna's pottery is a work of artistic beauty whether functional or one of a kind. Deanna has been making pots and managing a pottery Studio and gallery for40 years.

 Her work is inspired by the natural surroundings of the Bayfield peninsula and reflect the  colors of the Lake Superior shore line. "Most of my work is meant to be used and enjoyed in your everyday life." I learned much of my craft from my dad and pursued a degree in art from University of Wisconsin, Riverfalls. The animal images you see on my pottery come from years of living in the north woods and coexisting with their habitat. I am blessed to live in a pristine place and want to reflect that in my work..

Wisconsin Pottery inspired by regional beauty.

Peter Skoro

Pete has an affection for shape, form, and composition which are always goals whether the pot is functional or sculptural. He works in stoneware and raku and enhoys teaching student and visitors about the process of making pots. He focuses on the energy and spirit contained in each piece. Purpose and use go hand in hand in his mugs, bowls, plates, casseroles and any of the fine functional ware Eckels Pottery is known for.
