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.
There is an island in the lake out back of our house, and many years ago we were fortunate to purchase it for our family's enjoyment. The people in town told us that there had been an eagle's nest on the island for many years.
Shortly after we bought it, the eagles returned, and every year we watch as they raise their young and soar overhead.

All ornaments come with ribbon or wire for hanging and individually gift boxed with descriptive text as listed above.
Each ornament is crafted by hand. Because of this, no two are exactly alike.
