Marlene Jones, Artist of the Month
Our 3D Artist of the Month for October is Potter Marlene Jones.
Marlene has been creating ceramic art since the 1960’s, and studied the art form in Italy as well as the United States. Marlene creates beautiful stoneware and Raku pottery, but her passion is horsehair pottery. Hair from the mane or tail of a horse is thrown on a hot clay vessel where it vaporizes, leaving a carbon trail pattern. She finds it very rewarding to create an art piece that commemorates the life of a horse.
