Maple Lane Pottery
Robbi Fritz Portela
Robbi has been working with clay since she was 13, having been inspired at a demonstration given by a wonderful potter under a tent at a craft fair! This clay obsession led to art school and then to her own studio in the Ell of her 200 year old farm house.
She loves to work in stoneware clay and makes pieces that are both fun and functional. Her work reflects all the years of living and working on a small farm in both New Hampshire and later in her present home of Windsor, Maine where she is constantly inspired by the animals around her on her farm and in the surrounding country side.
Robbi decorates her stoneware pottery with a variety of brightly painted whimsical farm animals and wild creatures, from Hedgehogs to Ravens. She hopes that these pieces bring happiness to your life!
