Marie Creates floral ceramics and dinneware. Her technique is hand
built based and begins by rolling out clay into large flat
slabs that are free-hand cut to size and shape, then sculpted to form
each unique piece. After nearly a week of drying time, the pieces are
fired twice; the first time for twelve hours, up to 1971 degrees
Farhrenheit, when this process is complete they are under glazed, or
hand painted and scripted with a ceramic pencil, clear glazed with
non-toxic glaze, then fired a second time for eight-twelve hours to
1855 degrees Fahrenheit.
Marie has worked with clay for nearly 25 years and has incorporated her
designs with the interior enviroment in mind, to add that extra pop of
color and surprise to a space. What motivates her is "knowing that my
work makes people happy!"
