Lets welcome our next stall holder attending our Open Studio Event:
MARIA MURTAGH - "THE LITTLE POTTER"
Karen and I first saw Maria's work at the Chiddingly Art Festival and fell in love with it, particularly the deep indigo bowls ...with heart motifs, so when we set about looking for stall holders for our Fair we knew we wanted Maria's work.
Maria has been a potter for over 30 years, she makes high fired stoneware which she decorates with her own mix of wood ash and coloured glazes. Each piece is unique and individual, glazed with high temperature stoneware glazes, Microwave, oven and dishwasher proof. Over the last few years she has started using words on her pottery and her most recent works includes The Four Seasons which are large bowls with words from different poets combined with images which she feels represent the seasons.
