FARMINGTON – Heirlooms of Tomorrow will welcome as artist of the month Mary Kay Spencer during March. The public is invited to attend an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, March 2, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 3. Refreshments will be served and Spencer will be in attendance to explain her work.

Spencer’s pottery is familiar to many in Franklin County. Her work has been available at Heirlooms of Tomorrow since its inception and she shares space with Malley Weber Houghton of Moon Shine Pottery at Hallowell Clay Works, 100 Water St., Hallowell.

A professional potter for almost 25 years, Spencer began with a small studio in Connecticut and relocated to Maine 21 years ago. Her work began with traditional functional pottery. She soon learned to paint with glazes on stoneware pottery after taking a series of watercolor classes.

Her studio/business has evolved from being a production studio with many assistants to making pottery that is functional and beautiful, using her individual artistic talents. Spencer is active in the Central Maine Clay Artist organization that promotes education among its members and offers clay awareness to the community.

Heirlooms of Tomorrow is located at 710 Wilton Road across from the Franklin Memorial Hospital.
