Rowe Pottery of Cambridge, Wisconsin to Produce 2015 RWCS Commemorative

Red Wing, MN – Red Wing Collectors Society Commemorative Manager Bob Morawski announces that Rowe Pottery Works of Cambridge, Wis. will produce the 2015 RWCS Convention Commemorative. In addition, Rowe Pottery will also produce 2 gallon shoulder jugs to serve as the special pieces that will be auctioned off to benefit the Society during the club’s annual Convention, July 9-11, 2015.

Rowe Pottery Works has been in business since 1974, beginning as a one-man potter’s studio. Although the pottery has grown in their nearly 40 years in business, they continue to stay true to the craft’s tradition. Rowe Pottery has been under the ownership of Bev Semmann since 2013, who has been with the company since 2007 as Vice President and General Manager.

Morawski says this will be the fourth time the RWCS Commemorative will be produced in Wisconsin; the last time was in 1997.

“I am very excited to be working with the potters at Rowe to make the 39th commemorative for the RWCS” Morawski says. “This year’s commemorative will be quite unique.”

The identity of the RWCS Commemorative is a closely guarded secret every year until the piece is unveiled on the Thursday of Convention Week (July 9). With the theme “Excursion to Red Wing”, the 2015 RWCS Annual Convention is slated for July 9-11, 2015 in Red Wing, MN.
