About Prescott Hill Pottery
and Prescott Hill Studios
Prescott Hill Pottery in Liberty, Maine is a gallery and studio where Betsy Levine hand-makes and displays her work. She throws and hand-builds useful pots (tableware, storage jars and vases) and evocative vessels in high-fire stoneware and porcelain. The pots are often altered while wet, or carved or incised when leather-hard.
Most of the tableware is open stock and you can usually find a variety of pieces in each collection. The vessels and hand-built pieces are one of a kind. The pots are fired to cone 10 (2350 °F), either in her gas-fired soda kiln or in a week-long community wood firing. Unless specially noted, you can assume that the pots are vitreous, food-safe, oven-safe and dishwasher-safe. Treat them well, do not shock them, and they should give many years of pleasurable service.
