Mary Ann Leigh - Ceramics, Jewelry, Watercolors
With ceramics as her major focus, Mary Ann looks for something magical in the world and figures out how to translate the concept into a ceramic artwork.
Inspiration is found in the curve of a leaf, an ocean with attitude, a posturing bird, the flounce of petals, the precariousness of rock outcrops, a smirk on a face, children at play. The more complicated the process, the more she delights in the finished product that results when planning, will, luck, determination, and serendipity all come together.
When that kiln door is opened, sometimes, and really only sometimes, there is magic.
