Marianne is a ceramic artist from South East London.
Originally from South Africa, Marianne moved to the UK in 2002. She has always been making something with her hands whether it be painting or working with clay. She completed a BA degree in Fine Art at the University of Stellenbosh in 2001 and continued developing her passion for ceramics by attending various adult education colleges in London.
She has further developed her skills in mold making and slip casting as she prefers the challenges her hand sculpted forms poses to the mold making process. The final pieces are then completed with various surface decoration and fine detail sculpting before undergoing a two stage firing process.
She remains inspired by African patterns and organic forms. The decorative patterns and shapes she uses is a humble nod to her place of birth.
Prices are an honest reflection of the time it takes to create the ceramics you see here. Handmade & slow made with care.
