Maine is home to many ceramic artists, all working with earth, water, air and fire to make beautiful, intriguing objects. It takes a certain kind of person to work in clay, but patience, perseverance and a sense of humor help.

On  May 5 and 6, you have an opportunity to meet the unusual and creative people who throw the pots and fire the kilns. The Maine Pottery Tour celebrates its 7th year with 43 studios welcoming the public to meet the artists, peek in the kilns, and shop for pottery and other fine handmade work. Maybe even try the wheel yourself. Studios will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 5 and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 6.

For a complete list of participating studios, please visit www.mainepotterytour.org . There you will find links to studios and an interactive map to plan your pottery road trip.
