Peninsula Potters
Potters and clay artists of Blue Hill Peninsula and Deer Isle, Maine

Who We Are

The Peninsula Potters is a guild of nationally-recognized and emerging artists who have settled in the Penobscot Bay area of Maine, and established working studios. For generations this has been an active fishing community as well as much beloved vacation destination. We have been drawn here by the beauty of the surrounding land and seascapes and the creative spirit of its inhabitants. 

Please join us for our 17th Annual Studio Tour & Sale.
October 12 & 13, 2019 (Saturday thru Sunday) 10am - 5pm
