Light & Dark: Pots by Betsy Levine

For the month of October, Maine Potters Market features the work of Betsy Levine, of Prescott Hill Pottery. Betsy’s pots employ both the dark and varied tones of wood-fired stoneware and the bright and pebbled surfaces of soda-fired porcelain. She juxtaposes the warmth of soda-glazed bare stoneware with luscious glazes softened by the atmosphere in the kiln.

Betsy’s pots are organic and earthy; her forms are simple, yet graceful, revealing the complex surfaces resulting from the interaction of clay and fire.

Betsy’s pots are made to be used, admired and loved. They may look like works of art but they can go from table to dishwasher and be used and enjoyed every day.

ABOUT BETSY LEVINE – Betsy moved to Maine in 2005, built her soda kiln and established Prescott Hill Pottery in Liberty. She makes useful pots (tableware, storage jars and vases) as well as evocative vessels in high-fire stoneware and porcelain. Betsy’s work reflects her long-time interest in artifacts, in ancient historical records, marks on tablets, and the very earliest impulses to put our ‘prints on the sands of time.’
