MARITA GREEN POTTER - NEW PLYMOUTH
"I'm a potter, wife, and Mum, working from my home studio. I make in small batches, and feel my work is an intuitive response to my own, (often resonantly shared), experience of life. My work is about how I see the world; I love colour, fun, and stories. The greatest buzz for me is knowing I'm giving an authentic voice to someone else to express who they are. Discovering clay was like a homecoming to me, and I know I'll never stop making. If I have a ‘day off’ you’ll still find me in the studio. There is a real place for hand-made things in a sea of mass production. I like the fun of making jewellery, and work exclusively in porcelain for this, as it has the greatest strength and clear white colour of all clays"
