Maine Pottery Tour, Central Region 2017



You can find my studio, Fine Mess Pottery, and nine more in one of the most beautiful and least appreciated regions of the state: Central Maine. In addition to great pottery and handmade goods, the region boasts a scenic drive, the beautiful Kennebec River, and many delightful little stops for lunch or drinks. ANd you don't want to miss Monkitree, a fine crafts gallery in Gardiner, and one of the sponsors of the Maine Pottery Tour.  Maybe the easiest section to visit the most studios, too! Here's the list:
Hope to se you May 6 & 7th!

Download the Map!

The downloadable version for the 2016 Pottery Tour map is available! Plan your road trip - get yours at this link.
 The first page is a list of studios, with addresses and phone numbers (in case you need directions!) The second is a map with markers for each of the 35 studios. The tour is laid out as a loop, starting in Kennebunk and through the studios in the Lakes Region, then turning back through the Portland area, up through Bowdoinham into Central Maine, then down the coast from Warren to Arrowsic.

But hey - start wherever you like! There's a lot to see.
