Murray Hill Pottery Works

outsidepottery7Founded 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!

EMPTY BOWLS

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 900 bowls for the Empty Bowls event in 2009 which helped raise $32,000 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! Visit the Empty Bowls Site.
