Jessica Teesdale Pottery – Portland, ME
In 2011, Jess started to make use of all of her clay scraps and began designing a line of mugs and tableware. the first item developed was the popular woodland mug.
With inspiration and repetition the mug line expanded and the imagery continues to build. She then began to expand to bowls and dishes, the shapes created were created as flat surfaces, upon which stamped imagery could present itself. The earthenware line is modern with clean lines and simple shapes, great for soap dishes, jewelry trays, and catch-all dishes!

Local artist, Eric Graffam uses found objects to create a whimsical interpretation of Maine’s wildlife. Each piece is as unique as the driftwood and objects used!

New England natives and Farmhouse Pottery founders Zoe and James Zilian wanted to create a place with a modern farm aesthetic that represented farm-to-table values infused in traditionally crafted designs.
Determined to sustain the next generation of local makers and farmers, they were compelled to bring authentic gifts with a deeper meaning and useful purpose to market. Zoe grew up in Camden, Maine and studied at Portland’s very own Maine College of Art (MECA).
Bates Mill – Lewiston, ME
The Bates Manufacturing Company was established in Lewiston, Maine in 1850 by Benjamin Bates. It quickly became one of the largest textile manufacturers in New England and transformed Lewiston from a struggling agricultural town into a booming industrial city.
By 1857, the Bates Mill in Lewiston ran 36,000 spindles, employed 1,000 hands, and annually turned out 5.7 million yards of the best quality of cotton goods. Even after winning multiple achievements and awards for his textiles, including “Best Pantaloon Stuffs” and “Best Plain and Fancy Cotton Fabrics”, Bates wanted more. Accordingly, in 1858 the Bates Manufacturing Company wove the first Bates bedspread.
Carrying on their original traditions through to this day has provided for a unique and historical product. Home Remedies is proud to offer their throws and bed spreads!
