What artisan market would be complete without pottery? No need to worry Portland Saturday Market has several artisans who create pottery designs. Each of them has their own unique flair in their creations. Today though we are going to introduce you to "Nick Molatore", who is one of the markets reserved vendors.
Nick and his wife Linda can be found at the market almost every weekend. Linda is shown above answering questions for a couple of visitors to the Portland Saturday Market.
Artisan Market booths are so great and unique. Some really show the artisans flair. Such as these lovely shelves that allow easy viewings and really showcase Nick's creations.
Linda posing for me, and off to the side that is Nick. He really prefers to stay in the background and just create, but he is a very man and getting talking about his creations and he becomes animated and lights up. On the shelf next to Linda you can see a variety of toothbrush holders and mugs.
These lovely platters are made in a variety of colors, some with additional texture some without.
Bowls with handles, bowls without handles, small bowls for dips, and dessert bowls. You can outfit your kitchen and add a flair to your table when entertaining.
Nick also does platters with designs. I love the fish shown above.
All of Nick's pottery is Lead-free, dishwasher safe, microwave oven safe and oven safe. However,it is not safe for stovetop use. When the market is closed in January and Feburary you can still see Nick's creations at http://www.farpointpottery.com/.
