Mary Ann Leigh see something magical in the world and wonders how to translate the concept into a ceramic work.
"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," says Mary Ann. "Often the struggle to create is just that. The more complicated and quirky the idea, the more gravity defying, the more complex the techniques to be mastered, the more engineering, the more re-engineering, the making of glazes, the tinkering with those glazes, and especially, the more puzzling the process, the more I delight 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. Enjoy!"
