The Maine Attraction


Anyone who’s experienced a summer in Maine knows there’s something magical about Vacationland. Now, you enjoy the best of a Downeast summer—lobster dinners, shells, the thrill of an undiscovered patch of sand—year-round thanks to Artful Wares’ beautiful tabletop collection. New England native Tamra Philbrook started the company by handcrafting bits of shell and other natural material found along shorelines up and down the state into dishwasher-safe tableware. As demand grew, she and her husband Glenn developed a partnership with local seafood processors to utilize reclaimed crustacean shells, as well. The result is a one-of-a-kind line of environmentally friendly serving pieces infused with the spirit and memories of Maine. Buy Artful Wares in local New England stores or at
