Dock 6 Pottery started as a collective of four potters looking to share space and expenses. The name stems from the building's loading dock that served as access to the studio. The original potters have each gone their separate ways, but the relocated studio and its name carries on under Kerry Brooks, one of the original potters. The studio is located in Minneapolis and Kerry works primarily in wheel-thrown, high-fired stoneware. Her pots are fired to about 2400 degrees in a natural gas kiln so pieces without fused glass can be used in the oven or microwave and are dishwasher safe. Pots with fused glass are primarily decorative, but can be used with dry foods and should be hand-washed. All of Kerry's pots are very durable and will not lose their vibrant colors over time. She hopes people will enjoy her pottery for both its function and its art. We certainly do!
