Pottery Gallery

Our pottery is exquisitely crafted from stoneware clays, then glazed and fired in a wood or gas kiln for a warm and varied effect. The forms are traditional and are influenced by nature: the woods, gardens, fields, animals, and the human form.
Simply Dunn offers a variety of fair trade and locally made gifts and toys. The pottery is located in beautiful Downsville, just minutes south of Menomonie, Wisconsin.

Very friendly atmosphere, lots of fun chatting with the potter himself. I bought three lovely smaller items for Christmas gifts. The potter showed my friends and I around his studio and his different kilns including his traditional wood-fired kiln.

I had such a wonderful time at your home and studio. I’m awestruck at your abilities. So wished I had purchased more cute bird feeders and birdhouses. The grandkids are enjoying the books, but the real reaction was my husband and the tankards. Beautiful workmanship.

I was happy to receive a piece of your pottery from the Wisconsin Farmers Union for the 2020 Friend of the Farmer Award. I will proudly display this in my Washington, D.C. office. I am always impressed with the talent of artists and the impact made to our local tourism economy. It is because of your creative efforts that our local communities remain vibrant.
