Chris and Richard Hilton shared a dream: to make and sell pottery in a little red schoolhouse on the road to Boothbay Harbor. Forty years later we're still making beautiful, durable, and functional pottery. Our shops also showcase the work of many other American artisans.

Beautiful assortment of pottery to choose from! Chowder Bowls to trays to vases to custom pieces. Love the colors and variety of selection. Take home a piece of Maine and support made in the USA.

We were just browsing in the area stores and walked in here. The pottery is beautiful and unique. We didn't buy anything, but we certainly enjoyed looking around.
