We are a studio pottery specializing in functional pottery located on the �quiet side� of Mount Desert Island, Maine. We can be found on Kelleytown Road in Seal Cove.

Our durable, vibrant glazes reflect the colors of the Maine coast and sea. We glaze in blue, green, yellow, black, white and sometimes red!

We have a variety of special designs such as our very popular cattail and dragon fly motif, Mount Desert Island fern design, and plates with crab, sand dollar and starfish designs in their centers.

Our work is oven proof and microwave safe. We produce plates, bowls, platters, pitchers, vases, and other specialty items. We produce both wheel thrown and hand built work.

We enjoy a very active summer with guests who live near or are visitors to Acadia National Park. We enjoy many repeat customers who have become our friends.

In addition to pottery, our shop showcases fine crafts, jewelry, and includes a gallery to display painting and photographic shows.

Lisbeth Faulkner grew up in Rockport, Maine, attending a one room school for the first few years of her education, later moving to South Portland and Windham, Maine. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maine n Portland, where she studied art and social work, and completed her formal education with a Masters Degree from Boston University. She collected pottery from the age of seven and honed her pottery skills at Portland Pottery and Silver Dew Pottery, Daufuskie Island, S.C. Her love of nature, the sea and sailing brought her together with Ed Davis to create the building, gallery and pottery.

Ed Davis a native Mt. Desert Islander and comes from a long line of seafaring people who all lived within a few miles of the pottery. His brothers still keep their lobster boats in nearby Goose Cove. He decided early on to break from family tradition and attended art school. It was in art school that he first learned to throw pots on the wheel but he was more interested in painting so functional pottery was forgotten and clay became only an occasional sculpture medium.

Many years later he renewed his interest in pottery and the investigation of the process of working in clay. After a short apprenticeship with Lancy and Emily Burn of the Silver Dew Pottery on Dufuskie Island, S.C. Ed rediscovered what he had forgotten. He draws his inspiration from ancient Chinese and Korean forms and also enjoys clay as a canvas on which he can draw and paint.

He still continues to paint oils and watercolors that are also displayed in the pottery gallery.
