Making pottery is an intriguing process. The potter transforms clay shapes through fire in the kiln into desirable and useful objects. There’s skill and something magical about the craft. It’s natural that the potter wants to experiment, to try new shapes and glazes. What makes our gallery exciting is the flow of new work coming into Mainely Pottery. Some everyday items such as mugs and bowls may be abundant, whereas other items like a wood-fired pitcher or a raku piece might be the only one like it. With 28 potters bringing us pottery, we cannot photograph it all. We do want to give you a sense of the quality and variety of pottery you can find here. The images in our sampler gallery are here to enable and entice you to start a conversation. Please enjoy. To find out about price, availability and shipping call us at 207-338-1108 or email us at
