denis vibert | maine
Established in 1950, Denis and his wife, Ruth, ran Pine Tree Kiln, a studio, gallery and shop operated out of a barn next to their home. Initially, the Viberts sold a mixture of utility dinner sets and individual pieces. Many pieces and sets were unique, because Denis Vibert used a variety of glazes and two kilns, one gas and one wood. He had trademarked many of his utility pieces by keeping parts of them free of glaze to let the colors and textures of the clay show through. Some serving dishes bear hand-painted designs of birds, flowers or landscapes. Vibert’s pottery is highly prized in homes throughout Maine and the country.
