The guild’s founders, in 1976, were Abe and Gina Cohn, who owned and operated the Potter’s Wheel in Fish Creek from 1957 to 2013; and John Dietrich of Ellison Bay Pottery. They sought to create a community of professional, resident craftspeople who were making functional and decorative work in clay.   Find more details and a driving map at
