Rowe Pottery        

  Rowe Pottery Works was established in 1975 in Cambridge, Wisconsin.  In the late 1970s, as a two-person pottery studio and shop, sales were made through art fairs and the studio showroom.  Jim Rowe did the pottery production on the potter's wheel and the pots were fired in the brick kiln out behind the small workshop.

  Interest in collecting antique cobalt blue decorated salt glaze crocks and jugs was the inspiration to change the studio's pottery product line in early 1980.  Rowe Pottery went from making Jim's personal pottery style of salt glaze to museum quality reproductions of Early American crocks and jugs.  The value of early crockery was skyrocketing and quality adaptations of the early designs were not available. 

  Rowe, making salt glaze pottery in his studio for years, knew many of the secrets of this type of production.  The American country home decorating movement provided an eager customer base to grow the studio into a viable business.  Today, Rowe Pottery Works makes several styles of pottery including the ever-popular salt glaze stoneware in addition to hand-wrought ironware home accessories which were added to the company's product offerings in the late 1980s.
