Meghan Flynn is a full-time potter in Lincolnville, Maine. She makes a line of functional tableware and one-of-a-kind pieces. With a foundation in simple, gracefully proportioned forms, the seemingly limitless potential of clay is what keeps her inspired.
Without any intention of making it part of her career, Meghan fell in love with clay (and wood-firing) while studying at UNC Asheville. After moving back to Maine and working in restaurants and gardens for a few years, clay kept calling her back. In 2012, Meghan began to focus more attention on pottery and first participated in firing Jody Johnstone's Anagama kiln in Swanville, ME. The 8-day wood-firing is a true labor of love, and Meghan feels fortunate to have been a part of the crew ever since.
Meghan lives with her partner on a small farm in Lincolnville. There they tend to a big vegetable garden, orchards, chickens, and a cidery operation. And when they're not on the farm, they're out on the bay, tending to oysters. The rhythms of the seasons, the wood-firing in the spring and fall, the gardens, and being outdoors are all part of what inform and inspire Meghan's studio work.
