“Ancient myths and symbols are my inspiration”.  As a clay artist, Mariann celebrates symbols combining human and animal motifs.  Using clay that contains a mica-rich surface, Mariann carefully draws stories with glazes on fired clay.  These stories have been researched and influenced from the rich cultural traditions and ruins of the Southwest.  Each piece is painted with many coats of glazes which come alive in “brilliant colors” during the second firing process.
