Yellow Branch Pottery is a working pottery studio. Established in 1984 and built by Bruce, the studio is located adjacent to Yellow Branch Farm on land, which is being gardened to provide food and habitat, especially for butterflies and hummingbirds. Benches and picnic tables provide pleasant places to sit and enjoy the sounds and sights of the water, birds, butterflies, and all sorts of garden delights.

Karen Mickler produces functional stoneware using the potter’s wheel and makes hand built pots as well.



Tableware, ovenware, planters, lamps, luminaries, sculpture, and ornaments are among the many items that can be purchased in the showroom. Custom orders are also accepted.

Cheese is available at the pottery studio to sample and to purchase. 

Visitors are welcome to watch production and tour the work areas. Someone will be happy to answer questions.


"In 1970, I took a pottery class looking for a creative activity to enrich my life. Little did I know that I was beginning a life long relationship with clay that would shape me as I learned to shape it.

The clay itself inspires me. I love the sensual, plastic nature of clay and I love bringing pots into form. The creative process is satisfying on every level and I feel a deep connection in making pots that are used and appreciated by others.

The process of how I work is more important than any imagined concept of what I might make. I find inspiration from the folk potter of the past whose pottery making was one of many tasks in a day’s activities."
