Featured Artist!

Pamela Jeanine DeSantis

If you haven't seen her work, please immerse yourself here.
Pam's work has a definite look. Few people achieve their "look" as successfully. I think to gain that lens into which others can understand you, your style and mood and inspiration need a strength of confidence that can sometimes be most pure and true if it comes from ones environment. That's what I see when I look at her work; Maine and the dying of it's intensely saturated colors fading out but holding on into Winter.

Pamela creates jewelry and mixed media work of all kinds. She also helps run The (amazing) Hive in Kennebunk.

Patti Sandberg Ceramics

Patti attended our first craft fair last year, and we're so excited to have her back!

Here is a piece of her bio from
"My functional work is inspired by my two favorite things, animals and vintage housewares. I collect all sorts of vintage and i am in love with the colors and designs. It gives me a comforting feeling of a time i didn't know, like being at my grandmothers house, or looking at old pictures. I feel nostalgic for for the colors of my house when i was young. 
I also love animals and incorporate them into most of my work simply because the relationships i have made with the animals i have met and loved have inspired me and continue to do so."

Patti lives and works in Portland Maine, where she teaches at the same school where she received her BFA in ceramics, The Maine College of Art.
