Door County Art Scene: Jacksonport Craft Cottage Features Lighthouse Specialty Pieces

The Jacksonport Craft Cottage, now in its 25th year, is happy to feature the work of Ginger and Richard Michel along with an array of handcrafted original gifts created by over 120 artists.

The Michels – who started their business in 1998 because of their love of Door County lighthouses and the need they saw for gifts people could take home of these lighthouses – carve on greenware pieces to create a very unique line of Door County Lighthouse ceramics. Their technique gives the scene on each piece a 3D effect which is enhanced by their antiquing application.

The Michels have created their designs on teapots, lamps, coaster sets, match holders, bird feeders, butterfly houses, lanterns, plates, jewelry boxes, candleholders, vases and many other unique pieces. They carve over 70 different pieces with a variety of lighthouse scenes from the Door County area. All their ceramic pieces are lead free and dishwasher safe. They can be used in the microwave, baked in or froze.

Stop in at the Jacksonport Craft Cottage, open daily May – October and long winter weekends (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) from 9 am – 5 pm or anytime by appointment (920.823.2288).
