Calling All Volunteers - We Need You!

Marci Snyder


My Process

The first time I pressed leaves into clay, I heard an answer to a long-held question I had bubbling inside me. My pottery explores the relationship between the fragility and change found in nature the rhythm and cycles of the seasons, of growth and decay and the longevity of botanical imprints.

My Inspiration

Nature is my true inspiration. I find great joy and awe encountering the beautiful imperfect perfection of the natural world. I am captivated by the tiniest unfolding of a fern spiraling into newness, discovering the unique personality of each plant, each leaf, each seed pod.

Fun Facts

I use real leaves in each of my pieces. I'm obsessed with leaves and am on a constant look out for new ones ~ much to the chagrin of my family when we go on hikes! The new leaves often get stored in the refrigerator for a bit. I try to keep them far away from the lettuce so there is no confusion ;-)
