Marianne creates handmade ceramic homewares and sculptures alongside adored pets: the dingo dog and the rainbow lorikeet.
Marianne’s pottery pieces are often geometric in design. They display original motifs that come from quiet places such as: hot air balloons, jellyfish, stingrays, puzzles, eggs and australiana. She employs a variety of decorative techniques including:
Under glaze and glaze decorating
Mixing clay bodies

From the Artist
My mother enrolled me in a pottery class when my babies were small. 👶👶 She insisted I leave my small children with her and have some creative time to myself. I continued taking classes once a week for several years at my local community centre.
I set myself a project: to replace all my kmart kitchen ware, plates, bowls and cups with my own handmade designs. 🍶🍵☕🍧🍨🍮🍜🍲🍚
I began wanting to produce more items than I could make in a weekly class. I bought myself a kiln in 2018 and started making ceramic pieces in my small laundry. Around the same time my day job as a photographer for Google Street View was finishing up, I began selling ceramics to customers.
I moved my clay working station into a professional studio. I now work with clay (obsessively) full time.
Through ceramics I also developed an obsession with air plants. I built a greenhouse where I nurse air plants ready to mount on ceramic air planters. 🌿🌾🍃
Because I work alone, I don't have any colleagues to chat with. But when an online order comes through, I feel like someone out there is working with me, just by adopting my quirky creations.📦📦 When I see return customers in person or online it makes my day.
