Neighborhood Clay, home to Liz Proffetty Ceramics, will be one of the Lincoln County stops on the upcoming Maine Pottery Tour on Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Maine Pottery Tour will celebrate its seventh year this year with 43 Maine clay studios welcoming the public to meet the artists, peek in the kilns, and shop for pottery and other fine handmade work.
Neighborhood Clay, located at 590 Main St. in Damariscotta, will host a door-prize raffle as well as a free clay project – making a pop-up plate. The plate project is a fun, fast, and easy way to create a small plate. The work will be fired in the glaze of each participant’s choosing and ready for pickup in two weeks.
“If you have been wondering what happens at Neighborhood Clay, this is a great chance to come in and meet us, see the beautiful space, and try out a clay project,” said Proffetty. “We hope that we will inspire you to take a class or attend a workshop and to also consider buying your next piece of pottery here.”
Neighborhood Clay will also offer 25 percent off of all Liz Proffetty Ceramics items during the pottery tour and 10-percent-off gift certificates to be used for ceramics retail items or pottery classes.
Refreshments will be provided and attendees are encouraged to ask questions.
