We shape clay into a vessel but it is the emptiness inside that makes it useful.

-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching


Pierce Hill Pottery was started by Maureen Karlstad. She has been creating pottery for over 40 years. The name comes from the road that leads to the family property on Pierce Hill Road - in the Driftless region of southwest Wisconsin. It's a beautiful piece of land filled with rolling hills and mist-filled vistas that inspire anyone who visits.

Pierce Hill Pottery is also displayed and sold at VIVA Gallery in downtown Viroqua, Wisconsin.
