Hand Built Stoneware Vessel. 8.5″h x 5″w – 1.5″opening. Watertight.
All of my work is hand built. My forms are organic and created with a combination of slabs and coils. I like to think that one could come upon one of my pieces in a forest and wonder if it had always been there.

About the Artist
Maria Scott was born and raised in Chicago and has lived in Kalamazoo since 1984, following her graduation from Siena Heights College. Although she sketches new ideas constantly, she rarely works from them. Most often, she allows her sculptures to follow their own course. Her hand-built forms are bisque-fired, then buried in sawdust, which is set on fire. The burning sawdust leaves the artwork with a smoky finish that the artist feels suits her art.
