Pottery inspired by the earth and animals around her, Nancy Shaul creates a pottery line that is truly unique. Nancy of Westport Island Pottery created this Chicken Bud Vase as well as other functional pottery that are sure to be the perfect touch to your home.
The organic, earthy look of Westport Island Pottery’s Chicken Bud Vase delightfully displaying some little flower buds will bring a smile to your face when you see the chicken’s face smiling up at you. The 3D animal faces are all each unique and just so dang cute! This craftsman has been potting for a living since completing her formal education in 1978 and enjoys the whimsy of “playing” with clay and the joy of making items that will be used daily. Her farming/gardening background has inspired many of her organic altered forms. She now delights in the additional inspiration she gets while living on Maine’s coast. She works in high fire stoneware and porcelain that is gas fired resulting in a durable and useable ware. All of her work is functional, which she categorizes into 4 areas: garden items, whimsical pots, useful pieces, and seasonal pots.
