outsidepottery7Dear Murray Hill community,

After 22 years of incredible people, wonderful pots, and plenty of good times, I am stepping back from this great community that all of you have helped to grow! As of Dec. 1, 2019, Murray Hill Pottery Works will be no longer, and a new clay studio will be operating in its place. 

In the meantime…
Thank you, Chris! We love you and could never have survived this long without you. 🥰
Thank you to Divino’s, Lisa’s, and Emperor of China (The Emperor!!!!) for keeping us fed.
Thank you to all of you who contributed your time, effort, sweat, tears, and talent.
It’s been a wild, dusty, creative ride with sneaky possums, One Night Stands, Empty Bowls everywhere, and surprisingly very few kiln disasters!
I’m not going far, but it’s time for me to move on. Thank you again for supporting Milwaukee’s clay scene and local artists. See you soon!

Murray Hill Pottery Works


Founded in 1997, Murray Hill Pottery Works is a unique environment dedicated to learning, fun, and the appreciation of clay art. Owner Geralyn Flick has made it her mission to share the joy of creating or purchasing pots you can use – to eat out of, drink out of, and gaze at lovingly.

The working studio accommodates students of all levels, as well as established members, in a 2000+ square foot space on Milwaukee’s East Side. Murray Hill also houses an intimate, well-stocked gallery showing work from seven in-house potters and other favorite ceramic artists.

Engage in the creative process or delight in the finished product – Made at Murray Hill – not China!


As many of you know, the major project this year has been Empty Bowls. Clay hoarding started in January and recycling soon after. Over Mother’s Day weekend in May, the “gang” created a whopping 850 bowls! All in all Murray Hill Pottery was able to donate 800 bowls for the Empty Bowls event in 2018 which helped raise $60,000 for supporting local food and hunger programs in the Milwaukee area. Thank you to everyone who helped make, glaze, and wrap/package bowls for the event!
