What started with Jessie Schroeder Voss as a small pottery business in 2000, grew to a quaint store in a corner of Muskego with nearly 20 local artisans in early 2010. She has now added a wonderful friend, and talented business minded partner, Lynita Wolf who not only brings her artistic talents in the way of jewelry making, mosaic work, and vintage finds, but also over 20 years of corporate experience to the business.
In early 2012, we added the amazingly popular Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and demand for space and classes encouraged our move to a beautiful 1920s house in Hales Corners on Highway 100. After two months of renovating the house, we opened the new My Table Gallery in mid October 2012 and are thrilled with the beautiful, historic 1500 ft. space to teach classes and show over 25 artisans work. We feature Jessie’s custom dinnerware and serving pieces, Lynita’s jewelry and art, as well as pottery from two other artists, jewelry from various artists, along with copper work, yard sculpture, stained glass, wood craft, acrylic paintings, funky and beautiful painted furnishings, vintage finds, wearables and so much more.
Our classes are fun and informative, and teach everything from how to use the Chalk Paint® decorative paint, to how to Funk up a piece of your own furniture! We will be adding more classes throughout the year with visiting artisans, so please visit www.mytablegallery.com and our Facebook page My Table Gallery to stay in the loop.
Anyone who loves unique, quality crafted items for themselves, gifts or for their homes will love My Table Gallery. We love to mix the old and the new in our store, which makes for an artful home. We have affordable, approachable artwork that people can live with every day.
I have always had a love for pottery…all shapes, forms, and techniques. I remember walking around art shows as a child with my mom absolutely enamored with all the colors, textures and designs of the various artists. Later on in college, I fell in love with the unpredictable nature of all that encompasses ceramics. I would find myself racing to the ceramics studio after my business classes, eagerly anticipating the unloading of the kilns. All these years later, I am still as excited to unload a kiln and see what awaits me. I believe I have found something truly exciting and fulfilling to do with my life. I strive to provide people with beautiful, handmade dishes and decorative pieces for their homes.
I have been making jewelry for over 15 years and art for my entire life. Traveling the world has been an inspiration. I have been inspired by the sights and sounds of other cultures and I believe that inspiration is reflected in the organic, ethnic nature of my work.
In my travels, I am constantly searching through shops and flea markets for the next treasure to be worked into my own imaginative interpretation of the journey whether it be jewelry, mosaics or repurposed items.
