Mary has been creating pottery for about five years and is accomplished in wheel thrown pottery and hand built clay work. She spends many hours in her home studio in West Knoxville, as well as other larger studios around the area. Mary's inspiration is nature and the world around her – which is clearly visible in the art she creates. She focuses mainly on creating functional pieces that are typically simplistic in style, then finishes each piece with its own unique touch. The clay bodies and glazes used are oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
