Mary Trotochaud open house and garden tour

Everyday Pottery is the work of Mary Trotochaud.  She forms functional stoneware pottery on the wheel, created for everyday use.

“Every day I look out my studio windows to the colors of Maine. The blue of the summer and winter skies, the green of the deep woods and the riot of colors of flower beds and vegetable gardens – all inspire and inform the colors of my pottery.”
