Melissa Greene Pottery Deer Isle Maine

The Gallery


This summer is the 20th year of Greene Ziner Gallery. Please stop by the gallery and see our how we are celebrating this event!

We first opened Greene-Ziner Gallery in 1995, located just north of Deer Isle village. In 2000, we relocated to our present location, on the Reach Rd at the north end of Deer Isle, where the gallery is in our 1820s post and beam barn.

Our gallery features primarily our own work, the painted ceramic vessels of Melissa Greene and Eric Ziner’s forged iron furnishings. Eric also creates¬† whimsical metal scuptures from salvaged farm tools and other metal components. In addition we also carry the work of various family members and a few other craftspeople.

Eric’s dad, Zeke Ziner, the mentor and creative patriarch,¬† is an accomplished printmaker and sculptor of stainless steel. Joe Ziner, Eric’s brother, from British Columbia, is also an accomplished printmaker, including gyotaku, a traditional Japanese fish printing technique.
