It’s Maine Pottery Tour time

Apr 16, 2021

STATEWIDE — Springtime in Maine can mean daffodils or snow, and sometimes both, but the first weekend in May has meant the Maine Pottery Tour for nearly a decade. The 9th annual Maine Pottery Tour welcomes visitors on Saturday, May 1, and Sunday, May 2. The self-guided tour is an opportunity to enjoy spring in Vacationland and the hospitality of local potters in their studios. This event is eagerly anticipated by all who enjoy handmade pottery, as well as anyone looking for a special and unique Mother’s Day gift.

Nearly 50 pottery studios around the state are organized into three regions of approximately 15 studios, allowing several studios to be visited in a single outing. It's a fun chance to meet the artists, peek in the kilns, see demonstrations, and shop for pottery and other handmade goods. Interactive maps of each region and a full list of participating studios are available at
