The Pottery Shop Today
In 2014, John Clancy and John Ranco fell in love with the Pottery Shop and decided to purchase the charming shop from Chris and Alex Davis who established the store in 1984. John and John partnered with Ryan Fecteau in 2017 and collectively they are continuing the tradition that Chris and Alex established featuring Chris' stoneware and other beautiful products from local and international artisans.
Chris Davis Stoneware Pottery
Chris Davis began making high-fire stoneware pottery in 1972 at the Canton Institute of Art in Ohio. After a move to Maine in 1984, she and her husband Alex, established The Pottery Shop in Perkins Cove. Since that time many wonderful people have bought her functional stoneware. Her pots can be found in every state and in over twenty foreign countries.
In the tradition of the Arts and Crafts Movement in America, her pottery is The Art that is Life. It is meant to be used. May you find as much joy in the use of her pottery as Chris finds in the making of it.
