Donna Best has been creating stoneware pottery since 1975. While raising our children, we did art shows throughout the Midwest. Next came several retail stores in the area. In 1999, Jerry joined full-time making his own hand-built designs. After 21 years in Hayward, we have closed that store to feature our Summer Gallery at our home/studio. Our Summer Gallery displays our pottery, as well as the artwork and jewelry of 20+ other artists. Our designs reflect our love of the outdoors and feature hand-carved sketches of trees, wildflowers, pine cones and birch.. You are invited to enjoy our gallery, as well as explore our gardens and mini-gardens. Our work reflects our love for God and His creation. We love what we do and hope you feel that in our work and Summer Gallery.
