Lunaform, an Amazing Pottery Studio in Maine

This summer, I’ve been really enjoying Skylands, my home on Mount Desert Island in Maine.  I’ve had very pleasant company, enjoyed delicious farm-fresh meals, and have had many interesting outings.  One day, I visited the fabulous Lunaform, a pottery studio in West Sullivan, Maine.  Lunaform is the brainchild of two very talented men, Phid Lawless and Dan Farrenkopf.  They create extraordinary garden planters and urns, many of them reminiscent of vessels found in ancient Greek and Roman gardens.  Phid and Dan also find inspiration in classic American garden objects.  The pieces are all hand turned on wheels, in concrete, and completely steel reinforced and there is a wide variety of natural color and textural finishes to choose from.  I really love this busy studio and I especially love what it produces.
