BEAUTIFUL FUNCTIONAL POTTERY

Situated in the charming village of Stockholm, Wisconsin, on the banks of the Mississippi River, Stockholm Pottery is now part of the new Purple Turtle Artisan Collective, a friendly shop filled with artists' creations from around the country, with an emphasis on local and regional.

The Shop

After twenty five years at her shop in Stockholm, Diane Millner is semi-retired, but still making her pots. Her pots are still available in the same lovely yellow Cape Cod house next to the railroad tracks in Stockholm, but the store is now called The Purple Turtle Artisan Collective. The new proprietor, Amanda Scholz,  is an amazing woman with some very interesting, fresh and funky creations from around the country. In addition to Amanda's inventory, you will find your favorite Diane Millner pots in her store.

Stockholm Art Fair!

Diane will be manning her booth at the Stockholm Art Fair, Saturday, July 15, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with a very large stock of new pots fresh from the kiln. Hope to see you there!

The photo above was taken in Diane's home studio on Goatback Road outside of Pepin, Wisconsin. All of her pots are thrown on a potter's wheel. She makes functional pottery for everyday use that is as beautiful as it is sturdy.

Stoneware to use and love

Diane makes a wide variety of pots, ranging from her popular berry bowls, microwave egg cookers, and french butter keepers, to Japanese-style garden lanterns. She emphasizes that her pots are made to be used, and takes special care to make sure they serve their function well by focusing on details like comfortable handles and smooth bottoms. All of Diane's work is lead-free and dishwasher safe.

What they're saying

I have at least 10 pie plates but yours is my favorite. It makes a nice big apple pie, cooks wonderfully and nothing sticks to it. It is sturdy too. I even haul it off to North Dakota on hunting trips with the guys.

I initiated my mug this morning with a vanilla latté. The drink stayed hot much longer than in my other cup/mugs due to its depth and I love the handle! Thank you so much,
