Elizabeth Nadeau Pottery at The Village Studio

North Andover’s Elizabeth Nadeau’s pottery is available at The Village Studio. The local artisan makes nature-inspired plates, platters, and trays. Like the pumpkin pieces below. And she uses a pottery-decorating technique called Sgraffito. Which in Italian means to scratch. The beautiful result is contrasting images, patterns, and textures that reveal the clay color underneath. So, stop by the North Andover Gift shop soon. And see the different sized trays and sand bowls available for your fall decorating or tablescapes.
