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

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.
