My next sale will be November 20, 8pm EST, 2016.
Each piece I make is a product of fourteen separate steps and multiple creative decisions. I scratch each drawing into the surface by hand—an original drawing on an original form! The pots I make vary in size, form, character, and mark. Though I often work on variations of an image over and over again, each pot is singularly unique. It’s not just that my pots are touched by human hands in the process of their making that have earned them the distinction of being handmade. Instead, it’s the individualized attention paid to each piece and that they have passed through my own hands many times.
I’ve been making pots for 20 years, have had my business for 14, and have been selling over the Internet for 10 years. What I love most about selling online is that I can make direct connections with people and form relationships based initially on a shared love of pottery, then one that grows into other interests.
Growing up in Maine and now choosing to live here as an adult has taught me that great craftsmanship matters and that the story of making is part of value of handmade objects. You can read more about what it means to make in Maine here.
