For the month of July, Maine Potters Market features new work by member Rebecca May Verrill. This charming line of illustrative, functional earthenware celebrates farms and food, and the hard work that goes along with it. Cups, bowls and plates are adorned with individually drawn and carved chickens and tractors, smiling pigs, plants and vegetables and a variety of farming and gardening implements. This cast of characters on Rebecca’s new pots inspired by the Maine farming and gardening community will be sure to find a special place in people’s hearts, hands and homes.
Rebecca’s work is wheel thrown and trimmed, decorated with slips and underglazes, coated with food safe glazes and fired in an electric kiln. She chooses to work with earthenware as a material choice that aligns with her concern for reducing energy consumption. A percentage of locally harvested clay from the region is mixed into each batch of clay that she uses.
