OPEN WINGS POTTERY & GALLERY is a unique, eclectic collection of over 50 artists and crafters from the upper peninsula and greater Great Lakes region. Located in Munising, on the south shore of Lake Superior, the gallery was the inspiration of artist owners,  Thomas Baugnet (pronounced bo-nay) and Jill Zwemer (zway-mer) Baugnet in 2005. They purchased a dilapidated building with a stunning view of Munising Bay, and after major renovations, opened the retail shop in May 2007.
Change is in the air, and we have a big announcement to share with you!
New location in 2022! Last day of the season is Saturday, October 16, 2021
Moving forward with a long term vision, in our world, is never “set in stone” (just in stoneware hahaha). When we opened the gallery 15 years ago, we had a hope and dream to create a successful business, that included supporting other local artists, and the arts, in our community. Beginning in one building as home, studio, gallery.
After 7 years, we moved to our forever home, and expanded the gallery X 3. Beyond that, we knew, at some point, we would want to “go small” again, coming full circle, to one property as home, studio, and retail space.
Now the time is right for us, so we are announcing that we will be closing the in town gallery as of October 17. The plan is to open a small gallery at our home studio on H58, in 2022. Our pottery, along with a few other artists from the gallery, will be featured. And we plan to add in some new “goodies” from our farmstead!
We are super excited about this transition! Stay tuned for updates regarding holiday shopping days at our new location!

We invite you to stop, browse, and shop in the unpretentious ambiance of our gallery, where you may find that perfect gift for a friend or loved one, or a personal treasure– something which moves, excites, or inspires you in some way.

Purchases can be made via email ([email protected]), Facebook message (Open Wings Pottery & Gallery), or phone call to (906)387-5070
