"November comes and November goes, with the last red berries and the first white snow; With night coming early, and dawn coming late, and ice in the bucket and frost by the gate. The fire burn, and the kettle sing, and the earth sinks to rest until next spring." ~Elizabeth Coatsworth~
One of the items I enjoy collecting is Salmon Falls Pottery. Fortunately for me the shop and studio is located just up the road a piece from the Historic Hamilton House. Located in Dover, New Hampshire, off the beaten path, Salmon Falls makes it home in a former train engine house. Salmon Falls Pottery was founded by Andy Cochran in 1986 and has grown into the business you find today. Each item is handmade, it's shape, size, and design reflected by each of the individual potters. This pottery is lead free and microwavable. I confess I have collected a lot of seconds over the years, but one would never know. At one point the pottery published a news letter, included discount coupons and operated a seconds outlet, however, due to economic times, both no longer exist. So, if you reside close by and looking for something new to collect I highly recommend this beautiful pottery. And yes, I can always find room for one more piece!
