Beauty and Function in Plum Bottom’s Wood Show


Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery is excited to host Art Show 9 “The Wood Show” on Sept. 17, 3 – 6 pm, featuring the latest work from their family of artists working in wood. Come and listen to artist Ed Brogan at 4 pm as he walks through his unique process of woodturning and see what goes into making his one-of-a-kind works of functional art. Lights refreshments as well as Von Stiehl wine and Door County Coffee will be served.

Brogan’s turned bowls continue to push the boundaries of woodturning. He uses a unique method of assembling hand-cut wood pieces before the bowl is turned, creating stunning alternating crescent shapes of contrasting wood. Both beautiful and functional, Brogan’s pieces are finished in a food-safe mineral oil and beeswax blend ready to add a stunning accent to meals for years to come.

New to the gallery for 2016 is the work of Ron and Christine Sisco, who are incorporating precious stones into their functional dining accessories. Check out their beautiful and functional salad servers and cooking utensils. The Siscos incorporate turquoise and lapis gemstones into their wood pieces, creating beautiful pieces of functional art.

Plum Bottom, open 10 am – 5 pm daily, is located 15 minutes north of Sturgeon Bay or five minutes south of Egg Harbor on Hwy 42 then east on Plum Bottom Road to 4999 Plum Bottom Road. For more information visit
