Marita Green

I am a ceramicist, and the mother of two boys (9 and 7).
My creative history has been in clay sculpting, but I have more recently switched to making functional-ware. I’ve found making useful objects very satisfying.
I work on a (leg-powered) pottery wheel from the ‘60s and wedge my clay by hand. The manual process of my work is integral; I try to create objects as authentic and far-removed from factory-made-in-China as possible. I do not use molds, or any method of mass production.
