Rob & Dina Petro 

I am Robert Petro, founder of Moose Head Pottery.  Along with my wife, Dina, we started Moose Head about seven years ago naming our Pottery after Moosehead Lake in Maine, our favorite vacation spot.  We started our pottery line making custom Beer Growlers for the micro-brew industry.  Micro Brews have been popping up all over the American landscape over the past 10 years or so, and have become an amazing industry.  Our custom stoneware growlers have been a great way for these breweries to promote their beer in a unique and special way which is why our slogan is “The ART of Great Beer!”  Since 2014 we have created custom branded growlers for over 30 different breweries from New England to southern California and many points in between.  In addition, we have many of our own growler designs featuring everything from our Military heroes to wildlife. In all, we have crafted over 15,000 growlers since our inception.  There is something for everyone and many of our individual growlers are purchased as a gift for that hard-to-buy-for someone in your life.  We also make one-off custom growlers for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, or anything else you can think up.  Our growlers certainly do make a statement and we have a growing group of pottery collectors as a result. We have even made a few custom growlers for TV celebrities!
In addition to our growlers, we also create mugs, cups, plates, bowls and other functional pottery pieces that are uncommon and unique.  Since every piece we create is hand glazed with a brush, everything we make is a unique work of art and no two pieces will ever be exactly the same.  That’s the beauty of what we do… when you purchase one of our pieces, it will be unique to you and you can be sure that there will never be another one exactly like it.  We get a lot of comments from people about our unique shapes and designs.  Our square coffee mugs, for example, get a lot of attention.  It’s fun to watch people figure out that you need to drink from a corner and tilt it slightly.  In addition to our unique shapes, people seem to love our glazes.  We do some pretty unique things with our glazes with overlapping and layering that no one else does.  This gives our pieces their special look and charm that has people coming back to us year after year. Rest assured that all of our glazes are food and dinnerware safe as well as microwave and dishwasher safe.  Dina and I are honored to be chosen to be a part of Shaker Woods this year and as such, we are offering an exclusive Shaker Woods Commemorative Coffee Mug with the Shaker Woods logo engraved on the front.  It is sure to become a collectible piece and we will only have a limited supply at the event.  We are in Booth #15 and we look forward to seeing you there!
