Mary Fox Pottery: Original artwork that will stand the test of time.
I’ve been potting since I was 13 and still bounce into the studio every day full of energy and inspiration to create anew. Creating beautiful vessels for people to use or contemplate is a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend one’s life. I also love making functional ware, love that people start their days with coffee in one of my mugs or cereal in a beautiful bowl. When working on vessels created to adorn our tables I derive pleasure from knowing that, through the subtle intimacy that grows from their daily use, these pieces will become treasures in people’s lives.
My focus is on expressing the beauty and strength of pure form and then creating unique glazes that will enhance my vessels. For my decorative vessels I have developed glazes that can imbue my work with the look of unearthed antiquities. For my functional ware, I use glazes in a variety of solid colors designed with the user in mind.
I am happy to have the public visit my studio and Gallery to view my work. I am prolific and exhibit regularly so there is always a large selection of both the functional and the decorative works to choose from. I walk my dog in the morning so if you want to catch me then it is best to give me a heads up.
