Marcia Koski Finnerty Made In Mud-Decorative Ceramics Blog

Marcia Koski Finnerty (Made In Mud Blog) was fortunate to be a 2005 Recipient of an Individual Artist Grant from Arlington Arts Commission for the Arts: “Ceramic Art-Utilizing Indigenous Clays of Arlington.” Currently, I am making hand-built ”Jars and Urns” for pets and people. My process has evolved from ”Wheel Thrown” to “Extruder” components. In my work I try to incorporate: Nature inspired forms such as plants, sea creatures, bark, rocks, but also objects of everyday use; nails, crushed cans, or tire treads. My concept is to produce a fossil record of everyday objects we currently/recently use, but may soon become obsolete.
