For 45 years— the ceramic design & production workshops of Maine Kiln Works have created beautiful durable objects for everyday use, while encouraging artisan crafts and process engineering in a variety of mediums.
In 1971, Dan Weaver turned down a university teaching position and moved from north Texas to rural Maine determined to make a living as a “maker”. Four decades later—Maine Kiln Works believes the only way to fully appreciate any idea is to conceive, design and build it (virtual model or tangible object).
Dan was joined by his wife, Liz, in the late 1980s, and recently their daughter, Joanna, has joined the family business which is currently evolving to become a 501(c)3 non-profit educational enterprise.
Maine Kiln Works workshops are located in the beautiful coastal village of Gouldsboro, Maine, on the way to the Schoodic Point section of Acadia National park.
