Spooner Creek

Spooner Creek is the artwork of Michael Macone expressed in clay. He has been making pottery for over 30 years and his work is in collections around the world. Michael grew up in a very creative environment, as his mother was an artist and she encouraged his gift at an early age. In his high school years, Michael was introduced to clay and never looked back.
After attending Layton School of Art in Milwaukee for a year, Michael opened a small clay operation in Minneapolis in a one-stall garage. 

Michael developed a unique engraving technique that allowed him to etch his designs right into the clay, rather than placing them only on the surface. This gives the work a dimensional quality that can be appreciated with the hand as well as the eye. This process made it possible to produce a line of high quality ceramic art tiles. The new line was an instant hit and he called the new company Spooner Creek, which now offers a distinctive assortment of etched ceramic tiles. “We are zealous about keeping the line fresh and relevant.” Since then Michael has transferred his artwork to wood creating another style of products within his line. Michael’s two sons, Miles and Clayton, work with him in their Northern Wisconsin studio.
