Pinder Pottery

236 N. Main St., Galena, IL 61036


Joe Pinder makes intricate yet functional stoneware pottery for everyday use.

Joe's forms are strong, meaningful, and purposeful, creating a perfect surface to stamp or sculpt a design. As a young child, he began experimenting with dough art and even made sculptures using sand under swings in the local parks. After hundreds of drawings, paintings and sculptures throughout high school and college, Joe finally settled on his unique style of functional pottery. Daily demonstrations and classes.
