At Wayne Village Pottery, that lovely stuff known as Maine “blue” clay is dug out of our back field. The early redware potters also used this kind of clay, and we enjoy following their tradition of creating handmade pottery which is useful, affordable and decorative.
We started making ornaments and sculptures for our Holiday Open House. The ornaments consist of an array of local birds, beasts and critters; the inspiration for each ornament typically comes from some sort of encounter we have had during the year.
We were out on the lake one fall when a huge flock of geese flew right over us. We could hear them coming from miles away. It’s always a stirring and poignant sight. As they urgently head south seeking light, warmth and food, we know that it’s time to hunker down.
