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!
