Artist Statement | Pottery is a constantly challenging craft. My goal is to meet that challenge while producing pots that work and are pleasing to the eye. The function is most important: it must do what it is supposed to do, and do it well. It is very satisfying to me when someone comments that they are still using a pot I made for them long ago. That means I have succeeded and that perhaps the profession I chose for myself over 30 years ago is the right one after all!

Being a potter is a job and, like any job, requires hard work and perseverance for which I am repaid with fulfillment as well as income.

Marsha’s pottery is oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe. Do not subject to direct stovetop heat or sudden extreme temperature changes – allow refrigerated pottery to come to room temperature before placing it in the oven.

Technical Information | Wheel-thrown salt-fired stoneware and earthenware. Food safe.
