Peasley Pottery is owned by self-taught artist/potter, Nancy A. Peasley. Her studio is located on a small farm in a rural town in Downeast Maine surrounded by woodland, wildlife and her two horses, Beylah and Annikens. Nancy began as a painter, later expanding into woodcarving, pottery and sculptures. Prior to pursuing her artwork full-time, she held positions as a marine mammal research assistant & stranding coordinator, commercial fisherwoman, and in law enforcement.
Much of the inspiration for her work comes from growing up in a rural area where she spent a great deal of time going hunting, fishing and trapping with her father.
