Marion Mewburn | BIO < back to artists

Marion Mewburn started making functional teapots in 1996, which is when she left artschool in Dunedin.

Apart from a few diversions into other domestic ware, Marion has created quite a reputaion for her ceramic works ... over the years Marion's pots have become more elaborate - busy with her little characters often creating a narrative.

Marion states .. that "when a few life-upheavals interrupted the cycle of making and supplying my galleries at the beginning of 2012, the little people on my pots seem to have aquired a life of their own .. "

This has led to Marions' latest figurative works  -  "my little people on little chairs" - which, again with their own narrative,  convey their own stories about relationships ... albeit a little quirky, sometimes dark & mostly dysfunctional ..
