    Folks, I need a studio. That is to say, I need a space where I can work with wet clay, to produce my pottery forms, in quantity, and carry the process to completion. I need access to existing kilns, or be able to install my own electric kilns. I am currently in Portland, but as far as location is concerned, all possibilities considered. For questions or with information contact me

    Many thanks.

    At Hoffman Center for the Arts

    Manzanita, Oregon

    For the month of March we are featuring ceramics of Mary Roberts. 

    Mary is interested in elegant and modern forms with a feeling of volume. She seeks tension between perfection in the forms with imperfection in surface through carving, texturing, etching, drawing, or applying slip to a refined shape.

    This balancing act seems like a metaphor for just about everything. The search for perfection or ideal and then the beauty that comes from messiness and imperfection. 

    Mary is a local potter and volunteer with the Hoffman Center for the Arts.  

    This exhibit opens this Friday March 4 and continues every Friday through Sunday, 1-5pm, until March 27. Hoffman Center for the Arts

    594 Laneda Avenue, Manzanita, Oregon

    The gallery is free and open to the public.
