MERRIMAC, MA - In the quaint village of Merrimac, MA, just off the beaten path on 3 Mechanic Street, is Purple Sage Pottery. It was established in 1994 by Iris Minc, who has been a professional potter since 1984 and had worked in several area pottery studios before establishing Purple Sage Pottery.
