These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things – Wordless Wednesday

My Nana is a very talented potter. She was the owner of Rowantrees Pottery in Blue Hill, ME for over 30 years. Sadly she had to close the pottery down because of her health.

Her pottery is some of my most beautiful and prized possessions!

    those are beautiful. I’ve tried my hand at throwing pottery and it is not simple, pulse it is hard to make something beautiful too. She is talented!

    My deepest sympathy. My Mother bought her first pieces of Rowantrees in the 1940s. We still have them. Every time we came home to Bar Harbor, we had to take the trip to Blue Hill and walk the brick path to buy a new piece for our collection. I would have loved to work for your Grandmother. God Bless You

  5. Hi! I was looking up information about Rowantrees pottery because I have a brown teapot with the leaf on the lid. I found your blog and was excited to see Mrs. Pearson was your Nana. ! Just wondering if you’ve checked out the website for Maine Memory Network. They have a nice little picture and summary of her pottery business.

    • Actually Sheila Babson Howard was my Nana. She inherited Rowantrees from Mrs. Pearson! I will check out that website, sounds great!

  6. Hi. I just received from a lady in a retirement home a beautiful jug 6″ tall jug from Rowenstree that must have come from your grandmother’s shop. Would you or anyone you know be interested in purchasing it?

    I picked up a Rowantrees jam jar and lid at an estate sales this weekend and have had fun this morning learning more about the jar, and Rowantrees pottery. (For starters, I’d never heard of a rowan tree.) I’ll bet your nana had some wonderful stories to tell, and that it makes her happy for you to treasure her work the way that you do.
