Father-daughter duo spins and fires handmade pottery out of Beals Island

by Hailey Wood

Broderick Alley and Jennifer Ciappetta, the father-daughter duo behind The Fisherman’s Pottery and Gifts, make pottery out of their studio on Beals Island.

Their passion began in the Fall of 2018 when they took their first adult-ed pottery class, taught by Narraguagus Pottery at Narraguagus Highschool.

Initially, Ciappetta’s mother convinced her to take the class with her. In the end, she found it was too messy a hobby for her, but Ciappetta was hooked.
