Gresham, Wisconsin

Simon Levin owns Mill Creek Pottery in Gresham, Wisconsin, where he is also the creator and director of an apprenticeship program. Levin says, “I make wood fired utilitarian pottery.  My work is made in harmony with the choice of firing method.  The structural qualities of the pots, in form and texture, are made to catch wood ash, controlling and encouraging the pooling of this glaze.  As each body of work is fired, questions are answered and new ones are posed in a progressive conversation with the firing technique.  Wood-firing is a process rich in variables.”
