BOWL: The Essential Pot – Work by Elizabeth Louden

For the month of September, Maine Potters Market features porcelain bowls by Elizabeth Louden.

Bowls are the most basic and versatile of all vessels. Whether serving as the centerpiece of a dinner, cradling hot oatmeal on a cold Maine morning, holding jewelry on a dresser, or simply sitting on a bookshelf as a decorative object, bowls are everywhere in our lives. The simplest daily rituals are elevated when we choose to use objects of beauty and fine craftsmanship. Elizabeth’s contemporary, colorful work is intended to be incorporated into everyday life.

ABOUT ELIZABETH LOUDEN – Elizabeth is a Portland native, who currently works out of Sawyer Street Studios in South Portland. Inspired by a wide range of historical ceramics, she explores pattern and color in surface design, while making elegantly crafted, yet eminently functional pieces.

ABOUT MAINE POTTERS MARKET – Founded in 1978 by a group of potters who envisioned a cooperative market where they could sell their wares to the public and share their knowledge of pottery with customers, Maine Potters Market currently consists of thirteen Maine potters working in eleven studios throughout the state. The rich variety of handmade work available for sale keeps Maine Potters Market customers returning. July hours: Thursday – Saturday 10 – 9; Sunday – Wednesday: 10 – 8.
