Please join us for Open Studios at our ceramic studio located at Powder Hill Farm in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Tour our gallery, workshop, and stroll through the gardens to see our bird products in their natural environment. We create playful, glossy, and bright utilitarian objects and art that are engaging and fun; also work that is earthbound and primitive. Be inspired by our bird, lighting, objects & art, and tableware.
Our Mission: We create objects that are at home in an inspired life.
Our Vision: We animate objects with wonder.
Jim Schatz and Peter Souza
We started J Schatz in 2004 as a place for playful, glossy, and bright utilitarian objects, art, and decor that were engaging and fun. Our handmade ceramics appeared as if they were machine made because of the methods we developed to create a precise, refined object that was glazed to mirror-finish perfection. The line was modern and many of the items have become design classics. Peter joined the company in 2014 and encouraged unique forms, textures, and finishes that were brutal, earthbound, and primitive.
Together we are fearless and in private we call our life together P&J's adventure. In search of an inspired spot to locate the studio they moved from upstate New York to Los Angeles then Providence and finally to Boothbay Harbor, Maine where we setup the studio in a barn located in a place known as Powder Hill Farm. A beautiful spot with birds, gardens, untamed forests, and a history rich with stories from the Revolutionary War. Definitely an inspired spot to continue the evolution of our work.
