Pinch Bowl | Kaitlyn Duggan


These sweet dishes are made with a rich red clay by artist Kaitlyn Duggan. The bright majolica glazes contrast playfully with textured rim where the glaze has been carefully wiped away to reveal the clay’s natural color. Use them in your bed or bathroom to hold jewelry, or in your kitchen to hold herbs, dips, and spices! These are a great little multi-use item that will bring a pop of color and handmade goodness to any space.

This item is located at the Center for Maine Craft. Your order will include one (1) pinch bowl in your choice of Berry, Cream, or Robin’s Egg Blue glaze color. Also pictured: Silk + Silver Earrings by Bent Metal Jewelry, sold separately.


About the Artist

Kaitlyn Duggan
Little Cranberry Island, ME.

I am a mother, potter, gardener, painter, knitter, cook, lover of design and pattern and a year-round resident on Little Cranberry Island. I think of my work as a celebration of the beauty and abundance of life. I make functional, everyday pottery so the joy of that celebration can be more tangible in our daily routines. A mug in the hand provides a moment of silent reflection and a glimpse of deep peace and beauty. A colorful plate reminds the user of gratitude and appreciation for all the hands that helped to bring the meal to the table. In these small ways, each piece is a bridge to our inner mainland, a place of connection, potential and possibility. Beginning with red earthenware clay, I hand-build or throw my work on the wheel. I hand paint my designs with stains directly onto the surface of my pots overtop a majolica glaze. Often I will scratch through the glaze with a sharp tool (sgraffito) to reveal the white glaze underneath, adding fine detail to the decoration. I fire all my pieces to cone 04 in an electric kiln. My work is sold at Islesford Pottery on Little Cranberry Island, ME, at Archipelago in Rockland, ME, and at the Center for Maine Craft in West Gardiner, ME.
