About Blue Hen Pottery
Blue Hen Pottery is a partnership of Anne Pärtna and Adam Landman. They also employ a Studio Assistant, Hannah Cupp, who helps with production and making her own work at the Pottery.
Anne grew up in Estonia, where people used to not eat pumpkins very much, only as a relish type side dish with your potatoes and pork roast during Christmas. Living in America has taught her many interesting things and she has since become passionate about pumpkins and winter squashes as near perfect food – easy to grow, stores for a long time and can be roasted, made into soups, stews and curries and baked into many delicious sweet treats. What’s not to like? The shapes alone are a feast to a potter’s eye. Anne makes both sculpture and tableware and has become obsessed with bees.
Adam Landman will happily eat anything that has pumpkin written all over it. He is the technical assistance, the wood prep coordinator and chainsaw chief, the sounding board and sanity support of this enterprise. Occasionally he rekindles his love-hate relationship with art and spends a few hours in the studio, resulting in rustic, manly pots.
