Judith Barker (Jewelry) |
A Maine native, Judith has been designing and making jewelry since the mid-70s. It is still fun and there is more to explore! Movement and gentle sound are elegant qualities in Judith's pieces. Working in silver and golds, the common themes are texture
and line that reflect her love of nature... bark, lichens, shoreline rocks, the interaction of natural surfaces.
A nationally acclaimed artist, Natasha Kempers-Cullen has been creating collage construction quilts for the wall and related items since 1987. She is also a teacher, currently facilitating wokshops in her home studio in Topsham, Maine.
Natasha works daily in her newly constructed studio, surrounded by light, color, energy, and by fabric, dyes and paint.
The views of the surrounding fields and woods provide endless inspiration.
Making pottery is at the center of my life, sharing energy with family life since the 1970's when my children were born and I opened my first studio here in Maine. I currently work in terra cotta clay, producing decorative pottery that is excellent cooking and tableware.
I also make a line of stoneware pots, fired at high temperature in lustrous soda glazes as well as micaceous flameware.
Working in my studio, Mud Cove Pottery, on the New Meadows River, the landscape enriches my imagination and my time in the gardens suggests new forms, designs and colors. I hope my pots become a part of your life's daily rituals and traditions, enriching simple pleasures. Perhaps I will leave my marking.

Ann Prescott (Wood) |
Every piece of wood tells a story. A knot, a blemish, irregular grain, and other markings reveal the mysteries and conditions of the life of a tree. Imperfect. Transient. Evolutionary.
I love making functional objects that bring to light the distinctive character of the wood. I strive for finishing and embellishment that honors the woods’ essential beauty while also celebrating other color, texture, and patterns found in Nature. There is an endless challenge and satisfaction that comes from this union. I work in a small studio using mostly wood that is available in Maine. Teaching and sharing what I have learned balances the solitary process of turning wood.
