Mara Product Information:
What is Stoneware?
A very durable material, stoneware will last for years while keeping its original beauty. Each piece is fired twice at a high temperature and finished by hand. Minor imperfections are therefore a common characteristic of hand-finished stoneware products. Strict quality control has been established to ensure you the highest quality possible at the best price.
How is the Stoneware Finished?
Each product is glazed. There are many factors that determine variations in colors that result from high-fired glazed stoneware, many of which are a challenge to control. Therefore, each piece is unique and there are often variations in color. Only lead free glazes are used and the product is tested to ensure that there are no traces of either lead nor cadmium.
About the Artist, Mara:
Mara was an accomplished painter, sculptor and ceramicist who had studied engraving with the famous artist Alfredo Zalce. After studying art in London, she began working with high-temperature ceramics and created wonderfully unique glazes for her pieces. She then went on to study with the Italian ceramist, Bruno Terese, in Italy. Mara has had numerous expositions of her original pieces in Europe, the United States and Mexico.
"She has developed a fine sensibility in schematic and precise line drawings. Ceramics is no easy medium for precise line drawings, yet Mara has mastered her technique with brush and stylus and has been able to portray her life experiences with unrivaled naturalness. We see her universe on parade in all of her pieces, whether they be vases or plaques. Flowers, birds and geometric designs all represent her personal vision and display her unique perceptions of the world." Alfredo Zalce, May 1994
Mara worked daily at her studios creating an enchanting array of original pieces in varied mediums. She was a master of the complicated art of mixing glazes and gave her skill each day in overseeing the production of the fine line of ceramic tableware presented here.
