This year 19 pottery studios from across the state including Nancy Button’s Fireside Pottery in Warren will be open for the MAINE POTTERY TOUR on May 3rd and 4th.
With tour legs in southern, central and mid-coast Maine, there are as many different styles to see as there are destinations! For maps and more information on each of these legs of the tour, go to http://mainepotterytour.blogspot.com, or find them on Facebook at Maine Pottery Tour.
The participating potters have cleaned up their work spaces and are welcoming visitors to their studios to see the work they do. All are happy to talk with you about making pots, how they work with clay and the different techniques they use to decorate and fire their work. Get an inside glimpse into the life of a potter, tour their studios, peek into kilns and know that your purchase is supporting your local creative economy.
