Once upon a time back in 1979, Andy came to the Lake Superior area. Not having an idea what to do with her Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Louis' Webster University, she decided to mooch off her sister Leslie and accepted a clerking job at Karlyn's Gallery in Washburn, Wisconsin. Karlyn soon had her working the front desk, mixing clay and glazes, throwing, taking orders, and packing and shipping—before Andy knew it, she was hooked. A new love affair was born. Not just with clay, but with the business of running a gallery and making it seem fun.

Now Andy owns Stone’s Throw in Bayfield, and on occasion, when the busyness of running the place seems less than fun, she throws pots. And loves it.

About Stone's Throw

Stone’s Throw is located in beautiful lower Bayfield in a historic turn-of-the-century building. It’s an upbeat gallery where you’ll find a wide variety of eclectic items ranging from handmade porcelain pottery to jewelry, sculpture, functional home decor and more. You might even be lucky enough to catch Leo, the adorable, albeit quirky, shop dog.
