Our Story

Our Story

  • My husband and I started in our home teaching and making ceramics in 1967 as LL Ceramics.

  • 1980 we opened a storefront called Dolls & Etc in Delavan, Wisconsin.  

  • 1992, we added a full online business and storefront in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.  We are currently located in Mukwonago which is about 30 miles from Milwaukee.  We have classes in all types of porcelain work such as dolls, ornaments, figurines and other gift items.

  • 2021, we added a division to our business called Etcetera with ceramic greenware, bisque, classes and supplies.
