View 'Mw5 Grey & Orange Form'

Maria makes sculptural forms - chunky, bold and colourful with hollows that are soft and curves that belly out from within sharply defined edges. Each piece is individual and unique. She is interested in aspects of domestic functionality and its relationship with form and so her making process for the vessels is based on interactions with ceramic objects and how we use them from day to day.

"I love to explore the rhythm and movement of throwing clay on a wheel, excited by the freshness and spontaneity of the results. My personal intuitive touch is an integral part of my pots. This is evident by a wet hand on a soft form fresh off the wheel, through to an individual hand or fingerprint emphasised by the glaze...

I prefer to build upwards with coils of clay. I enjoy the slower pace, manipulating the shape and form as the pot develops. I work on a theme making 3 or 4 at a time, each one a development of the preceding vessel. Sometimes I revisit a theme at a later date taking it in a different direction. Texture is always an important aspect of my work and smooth insides often contrast with rough outsides....
