Family man, business man, potter, gardener.

Working from his home studio near Eden, WI, Alan loves creating beautiful items people can use and enjoy every day. Always exploring new forms and surfaces, he’s fascinated by the wonderful mix of craftsmanship, science, chemistry and creativity.

During the day, Alan owns and operates BrownBoots Interactive, Inc., a web development firm specializing in creating websites for banks and credit unions across the country.

Always positive, Alan strives to create forms in clay that inspire optimism. Recently he’s switched to working in porcelain and is developing a new, lighter glaze palette to further brighten his work.

As if that’s not enough, Alan still finds time to serve his community. Alan currently sits on the board of directors for the Big Brothers Big Sister of Fond du Lac County.


Utilizing a wide variety of techniques and glazes, Alan creates wonderful pieces that generally convey a visual sense of optimism.


Enjoying the simple things in life is made easier when using beautiful, well-crafted hand-made pottery.
