Our Potters:

The Stevens Family

Laurie, Scott and Mo make each piece by hand. It is thrown on a wheel, or hand built, which makes each piece a unique one of a kind work of art.

Scott Stevens

Scott Stevens, Laurie's son, graduated from the University of Maine, Farmington in 1993. He then worked for a potter in central Maine for a few  years before getting into the family business in 1996. He has been throwing specialty pieces such as Goblets and French Butter Keepers. His favorite things to throw are doumbec drums. What better use for a potter's hands, if not to create pottery, then to play music with them.
