Art at the Table with Alison Evans

Seated in the quiet town of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, Alison crafts dinnerware, functional art, and tabletop accessories from one of her two combined stores and studio spaces, AE Ceramics Home Store. The ocean and its surrounding flora and fauna inspire her work. Delicate oyster-shaped plates, intricate sea urchin-styled bowls, sink basins modeled after giant clams, and barnacle-shaped salt and pepper shakers that look artfully scraped from the hull of a ship are just the beginning for this artist. ā€œI really designed a business to be inspired by Maine, and to get that lifestyle feeling of Maine,ā€ Alison says.
