About the Artist
Westport Island, Maine
My name is Nancy Shaul. I have been potting for a living since completeing my formal education in 1978. Moving to Iowa I started my first studio pottery business, selling my pieces through my shop and midwest art festivals. Now I am potting on the beautiful coast of Maine. A wood heated studio in the winter months and the rural island location has made this a delightful place to create!
I enjoy the whimsy of “playing” with clay and the joy of making items that will be used daily. Each creation, whether taken from my “useful pieces” or Whimsical Pots” series, is hand-crafted with great attention to detail. Please note that each piece is unique, thus color and form will vary slightly. All items are watertight, oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe. About my glazes: I work in earthtones, blues, greens, terra cotta reds, and soft whites. The variety of glazes I choose to use work best with my gas kiln, they are very durable and suit the style of my work. The glazes I use are predominately creamy white, soft white, woods green, soft green, terra red, spodumene natural, rutile blue, and a green/turquoise.
