Spotlight On Northern Michigan Artisans, Makers & Crafters

By Beth Milligan | Nov. 28, 2022

Nancy Crummel’s passion for pottery—and indeed, all things art — is clearly on display at her newly-opened gallery, Long Lake Artisans Gallery & Gifts. “I became fascinated with the whole process of pottery about 25 years ago,” says Crummel, who opened her Traverse City area gallery in June. “I am mainly self-taught; however, I did take some classes from Mary Anne Ettawageshik, whose pottery and work I admire.” Crummel had always created pottery as a hobby, but her retirement gave her the time to turn a dream into reality — a gallery that she launched in a building that formerly housed a woodworking shop and, before that, an animal clinic.

Crummel is one of many makers, artisans, and crafters from across northern Michigan whose works (and the creative processes and collaborations behind them) are featured in this week's Northern Express, sister publication of The Ticker. Check out this week's issue online, or pick up a free copy on newsstands at nearly 700 spots in 14 counties across northern Michigan.
