Mary became interested in ceramics while pursuing an advertising career in London She attended St Martin’s College and The City Lit’, learning slab-building techniques and glaze technology. Her first studio was in Spitalfields, London. She now works from her garden studio in Kent. Mary continues to develop her work, exhibiting in Kent and Surrey and in Sussex with the Sussex Guild. She also supplies her ceramics to galleries nationally.
Mary is interested in the effect weather has on our landscape, how sun, wind, and rain are constantly interactive and in motion. Leaves blowing in the wind, the texture of a parched riverbank, erosion patterns left on rocks – she recreates these themes and moods within her ceramics. Mary uses slab-building techniques and her own glazes, which she has developed over the years. Each piece may use up to four glazes, making it truly unique.
