Introducing: The Maine Endangered Species Pottery series
Visit the KELT store to browse the Maine Endangered Species pottery series, a collaboration between two local artists, Mary McKone and Jackie Johnson! Each piece is beautifully handmade, showcasing some of Maine’s endangered species. We currently have mugs, bowls, and dishes available, and more will be added as they are created! A portion of the sales from these pieces will be donated to KELT.
