Meet Maria White of Maria White Ceramics. I love love love her porcelain creations. To watch her work is better than xanax – she fluidly creates these forms on her wheel making it look as if they pour from her very hands. I have the good fortune to happen by her studio on a regular basis… it is always an inspirational drive-by to see the her luminaries, eggs, and bottles (to name a few) waiting for their turn in the kiln. Her pieces are hand-thrown and then individually carved – each one injected with Maria’s vision. Do yourself a favor and visit her site to see her creations. And make sure to get on her mailing list for her bi-yearly sales. (then again, if you’re like me, you can’t wait until spring and will call for a personal showing of her work to select your favorite pieces). This week she is at the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore – stop by and say hello if you’re in the neighborhood!
