MARIA POHL

Maria finds her foremost inspiration in the ceramic process and a constant desire to surprise herself drives her to explore and develop techniques and materials. She is an experienced thrower who works and challenges the clay in freer forms. Her generous bowls, which have abandoned the classic round shape, have a pared down, sculptural look. The cups and the other practical items in stoneware and porcelain often feature a dense, hand-painted pattern in the glaze or more organic, screen-printed decoration.
