Liz Proffetty Ceramics

Handmade porcelain ceramics inspired by the coast of Maine. 

Mugs and Steins

Two options for sizing to fit the needs of the user.

The Mug:

The perfect size to sip coffee, tea, or cocoa and warm your hands and face as you wake on a relaxing Sunday morning. Just the right size to comfortably hold and refill at your leisure.

The Stein:

Whether it be for the weekdays when you depend upon your big cup of caffeine to motor through your day, or fun nights with friends and alcohol, the stein is just the right size to carry your beverage.


Bowls ranging from 21oz cereal bowls, to 48oz Noodle Bowls or  larger bowls for serving a large salad or letting your dough rise.

The Neighborhood Potter

My new weekly TV series

 I have begun a new TV series that aims to demonstrate pottery techniques, explain my own personal processes and introduce the audience to other potters working in Maine. The show will be available at 7:30 on Thursdays at LCTV.org and later that night or the next morning the link will be available in their archives. Below is the first episode where I show you around Neighborhood Clay and demo my process of throwing a mug and putting on handles. I hope you enjoy it and consider taking a class with me to learn more about this amazing medium.
