Collecting pottery pieces was something I used to love doing and something I think I really need to get back to. When we first moved to our home in Vermont about 10 years ago, the first thing I wanted for our home was handmade Vermont pottery for our everyday dishes. D. Lasser was just down the road from where we had enjoyed a ski house in Londonderry, Vermont for several years before moving to our permanent home in Vermont. There is where I purchased this mixed collection of handmade pottery pieces that I am sharing with you today at our coastal Maine home. Isn’t this mixed pottery winter table so warming and inviting.
Creating this mixed pottery winter table truly inspired me to start collecting pottery pieces again!
I found the beautiful glass goblets while thrifting this past summer in Ogunquit, Maine for just $5. These blue glasses always add such rich color to our tables whether they’re indoors or outdoors!
Decorating with pottery can bring out an earthy and moody feel that we all sometimes feel in the winter months. It’s both hardy and comforting at the same time and the reason I love using pottery on our tables in the cold winter months that we get here in New England.

The red winterberries are from our backyard here in Maine and are displayed in a pottery piece that was my mother’s. My parents adored the winterberries and decorated with them every winter here at the house. My father also enjoyed cutting and packaging the berries to send to his brothers and sisters to decorate with every holiday season. I treasure this memory!
As much as I love collecting vintage pieces, there’s really something so special about handmade pottery. Each piece is always made with so much love and character!
For some reason creating this mixed pottery winter table setting made me emotional. Maybe it’s the time of the year, the feeling of being here in Maine alone “In My Mother’s Home“, or simply the comfort of it all. I’m really not sure…
