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.

Beloved for its whimsical clown face, the Puffin is found (in the U.S.) only in Maine and Alaska. The Puffin was hunted almost to extinction but its now reestablishing itself with help from the Audobon Society.

4"L  X  2.5"W  X  .5" Thick

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.
