Visit us during Clay in May and the Fall Art Tour.
A full time potter for more than 3 decades, Frank Polizzi produces wood-fired stoneware, flame ware and porcelain, and pit-fired earthen ware.
His pieces are traditional in form and the locally dug, food-safe glazes add a vibrant and natural element for all functional and aesthetic needs.
14 Jail Alley Studio/Gallery at High St & Commerce St
This two-story 1940s Hatchery/Feed Store has been transformed into a first floor working pottery studio and gallery. The upstairs is a workspace for student potters and a gallery space for emerging artists in all media.
The Tagine, usually made of earthenware, originated in Morocco. Our wheel-thrown high-fire flameware version is nonporous and more durable.
The first Kabob Pot prototype (a mini grill for shish kabobs) undergoes testing in Chicago -- a reworked version is now available.
Frank was honored as the Wisconsin Public Television 2009 Commemorative Artist. Many of his pieces, including this Stoneware Crock and Blue Dragon Handle Vase,
were featured in the 2009 art auction.
