Meet the Artists

June, and her daughter, Kristina, are both New England craft artists who create and make Christmas SpiritŪ's "Words of Wisdom" Ornaments.


June, a self-taught ceramic artist, has spent the greater part of her life expressing her thoughts, ideas and humor through the use of clay. She rolls out the clay, embeds her own designs into it, hand-tears the edges, hand-paints the designs, and fires the white stoneware clay. She promotes her daughter's crafts, as well as her own.

Kristina played with her mother's clay as a child, and started sculpting one-of-a-kind ornaments in high school, selling them in her mother's shop. After school, Kristina taught clay classes to children, so they could make their own ornaments. In later years, her artistic hobby grew into a rewarding business. Like her mother's, Kristina's ornaments are hand-sculpted and hand-glazed from a high-fired stoneware clay.

Longer and warmer days are bringing summer visitors from all over the world to Bar Harbor, Maine to enjoy beautiful Acadia National Park. One of the sights they'll see is shown below- fields of lupines. These wild flowers grow in large patches in unused fields, near the water, and along side roads all over our island. They bloom each June in shades of purple, blue, pink, and white. Lupine have a light, sweet scent, and are Acadia's most outstanding wild flower. What could be better on a warm summer day than a cool breeze off the ocean, blue skys above, and fields of colorful lupines?
