Artist Portfolio-Mary Roberts
Mary Roberts' Artist's Statement and Show Images
This is a collection of functional wheel-thrown vessels in subtle seacoast colors and textures.
In Shape and Surface, my aim is elegant and modern: round, oval, angular, often brought to conclusion by exaggeration: a diminutive or elongated neck, platters impossibly ample, bowls coaxed upward or folded. Each energetically lifting off the base; clean, assertive, and new.
The Pacific Northwest coast inspires each surface – delicately lined shells, sculpted driftwood, fissured bark, overcast skies and granite rock, incandescent spring growth. Subtle and understated.
All are food and dishwasher safe.
