Mableton, Ga

Mariella Owen’s love of clay and nature started in early childhood in rural Alabama. The eighth of twelve children endowed her with abilities to work with everyone regardless of differences. It helped to form her one-on-one teaching style that reaches all of her students regardless of ability and/or intellect. From teaching college educated, certified art teachers, to handicapped and home schooled children, her knack for working with all students shines in the work they produce.

Her pottery reflects her affinity with nature in all of its beauty, energy, diversity and changing playfulness. Clay in her hands begs her to turn it into beautiful, fully useful works of art. Her hand crafted colors magnify the beauty of each creation stamping it with an indelible signature that makes it an heirloom directly from the kiln. As one recent purchaser wrote, “Your artwork is a wonderful gift to the world, and I consider myself so blessed to be in its receiving line.”
