Fired Earth Glaze Master, Jessica Ott shows off some of her new pieces from a recent kiln opening at Fired Earth Pottery Studio.

Fired Earth Pottery opened in Appleton in October, 1997 by Master Potter, Rick McKinney. Rick specializes in high-fired functional potter and is one of the primary instructors at Fired Earth Pottery Studio.

Pottery classes are offered at Fired Earth Pottery Studio three times each year. The 8 week class sessions meet once a week for three hours right in the studio, so students have full access to the facilities of a professional pottery studio, including over 50 glazes and a variety of kilns. Students may also come in on Saturday afternoons during the open studio time (available for students only). Sessions begin in early September, early January, and early March.
