About Rowe Pottery Works
Rowe Pottery Works was established in 1975 in Cambridge, Wisconsin. What started as a two-person pottery studio is now a group of artisans, each with his or her own unique talent and skills. Interest in collecting antique cobalt blue salt-glazed crocks and jugs was the inspiration to change the studio's pottery product line in early 1980. Since then, Rowe Pottery has been making museum-quality reproductions of Early American salt- glazed crocks and jugs. In addition, the line has recently expanded to include new products, warm colors and bold designs.
