  • The Shot Pot is a small cup perfect for shots of espresso, aperitifs, M&Ms, you name it! And, they are even great for things like paper clips, candles and much more.

  • Upland Design is a line of custom ordered bowls, vases, cups, lamp bases, spoon holders, and more, decorated with glazing inspired by the mountains, streams, and ponds of Maine.

Four decades

Master Potter Scott Currie made the first Apple Baker in 1979, a year after he founded Christian Ridge Pottery in the basement of an historic barn that had been renovated into a mime Theater in South Paris, Maine.


Since, his apple bakers have become a staple in the kitchens of thousands of people around the world and have evolved into other, creative kitchen solutions.


Our philosophy embodies values around environmental sustainability both in the design of products and in the production of our products and sourcing of our materials.

What our Customers Say

"I received a pair of apple bakers for Christmas and just love them! Will be experimenting with varieties of apples and recipes. By the way, I used a bit of sherry as the liquid in my apple concoction yesterday and it was delicious. I’ll be ordering these in the future for gifts for many occasions."


Jan H., Lompoc, CA

"Last week I received my order of 6 berry bowls (we’ve been giving them as gifts all year) and a set of apple bakers. I didn’t have a chance to try the apply bakers until late this afternoon and they were a tremendous success. You have to understand that you were up against stiff competition. - My mom makes outstanding apple pie with home made crust that everyone loves, but her biggest fan is my 8 a½ year old son. Despite years of being spoiled with Nana’s apple pie, he went absolutely crazy for the baked apples. A new tradition has been born! Lucky me, as the apple bakers are so easy but the pie is so much work! Thanks."
