Marie Prett

Marie fell head over heels in love with the medium of clay at school and the feeling has stayed with her throughout 6 years of ceramic education and 28 years as a professional ceramic artist. She has always sculpted the human and animal form, each piece individually hand built using the beautiful Earthstone Handbuilding clay and decorated using oxides, vibrant slips and glazes.Inspiration comes from characters in literature, folk stores, myths and fairy tales and a romantic notion of an “Old World” circus where animals help the show with love and “Joie de Vivre”. It is her constant aim to tell a story, create an infusion of energy, colour and movement within each piece.
