Mary has been working in clay for over 30 years, initially as a potter and more recently in tile production and design.  Her tile designs are influenced by the Michigan woodlands, as well as the “arts and crafts movement” and historic Dutch and German tiles.

The bas relief images interact with the matte glazes during the firing process, creating its own textures and minute crystals which reflect light.  The finished tile offers limitless opportunity for creative installations.

Mary has designed many beautiful kitchen, bathroom, and fireplace surrounds, creating exciting architectural statements. She believes that the task of an artist is to help us see and celebrate what is around us.
