For the month of November, Maine Potters Market features new work by Cathy Schroeder Hammond. Some of Cathy's favorite artwork and pottery are kept in the bathroom and kitchen. It makes sense - she likes seeing those pieces in the places she frequents every day. With this in mind Cathy created a limited edition of pieces meant to be used in those spaces. Included in the collection are sponge holders, candle holders, toothbrush holders, soap dishes, ring and earring holders, soap pumps, scented wax burners, shaving mugs, and more.
Color is a major focus of Cathy's work. New customers often comment on the unusual colors she uses.This new work continues to feature her
colorful glazes and nature-themed decoration, as she strives to make these often-asked-for items beautiful additions to useful spaces.
