  • Making beautiful glass art is my passion — whether fused, leaded, foiled, or sand-carved. Jewelry, pictures in glass, and table art are also part of my work.

  • I am a long-time creator of hand painted ceramics, paintings, and anything art related. Painting on surfaces is my passion! Recently, I have been exploring more sculptural clay pieces. Creating texture in my work is something I am working on and I am having fun carving and scraping details into the surface.

  • I have always enjoyed creating with my hands. The long, intricate process of making each piece of pottery is exciting: the texture and smell of the clay, the alchemy of mixing my own glazes, the firing of the piece, and the reward of seeing the finished vessel emerge from the kiln.
    The form and function of my ceramics are carefully designed to enrich and simplify life. Each piece with its smooth surface and continuous curve is intended to be used in multiple ways. A delicately carved bowl may be used to serve dinner, hold jewelry, or as an objet d'art atop a coffee table. This diversity of function allows each individual to create their own, distinctive use for each piece.
    I feel connected to the long line of artisans who came before me - our hands touching through time and space as we work with similar materials. This thread continues with the new owners of my pieces who start their own conversations and relationships with my work.

  • I make functional wheel thrown pieces. I fell in love with the feel of clay in my hands in the early 70s in high school, and on into college. Twenty four years later, after raising children and building a career in the financial industry, I carved out a corner of our garage. I call it "my studio."

  • I first took an interest in clay at Stockton College and was a classmate of Viola Fry, boy did she go far. Later I took an evening Adult Ed class at Sac. City. When friends started asking for my work, I got into doing shows. After 30+ years I stopped, but I still have an interest in clay.

  • I'm all about functional pottery, sculpture and raku-fired clay things. It's really not that difficult to fire your own raku kiln at home. All you need is some basic information and building skills. Oh, and a lot of free time to do it! Being a born pyromaniac also helps.

  • Sunburst Clay and Glass creates "Kiln Fired Art" specializing in raku pottery and fused glass jewelry handcrafted in the foothills of Northern California. I began my "Back to Nature" woven pots when featured at the 1990 National Contemporary Craft Competition out of Texas, and my grape pots were chosen to be showcased at the E D H "Street of Dreams" homes. I also can't get enough of making intricate fused glass jewelry and combine the two mediums often in one piece of art. With over 40 years of skill as an award winning artist and former gallery owner, Mary's pieces are inspired by the simple beauty found in the everyday.

  • I love clay. I love the feel of clay and the potential of clay when I am throwing on the wheel and when I hand build. Clay forms attract me, as do surface treatments — painting, faceting, carving, chatter trimming, sgraffito. Above all, I love the possibilities — and the impossibilities — of glazes.

  • My first exposure to art began with my mother making items for church fund raisers. I discovered a passion for clay and earned a degree before establishing a studio in my Fairfield home. My ceramic art is inspired by the mysticism of folk art, religious iconography, and ancient artifacts of Africa, the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

  • My first experience with clay and its endless possibilities, was in a series of classes with Robert Arneson. I am particularly interested in the self expression, narrative aspect of clay sculpture; that it can also be used to create functional forms is an added bonus. Life experience and my relationship to nature are what inspire my work.
