Marilyn on her work: "I'm self taught as a potter, and have been hand building stoneware pieces to sell since 1976. I work by myself. I have no apprentices or employees. My focus as I work is to create an object which embodies an image that can be a useful tool for understanding." "I like working with a material that undergoes such radical changes, and working in three dimensions helps me integrate the sensuous and the intellectual. I often use functional objects as forms for images because they assert the scale of ordinary life. This is where I believe we need art to function." Touches Tree is hand-built Stoneware and about 15" wide and about 8" high. We prefer not to ship this work.
