About the Pottery
Pottery is made with speckled or white clay that is medium fired to produce functional pieces that are durable enough for everyday use. Pieces may be microwaved and are dishwasher safe, although hand-washing will extend the life. All glazes are food safe.
Shannon uses environmental friendly practices whenever possible, including recycling clay and reusing or purchasing biodegradable or recyclable packing materials.
She supports local businesses in buying materials and prefers collaborating with Maine businesses.
Each piece is handmade from start to finish thus is slightly unique.
