Marions artwork is seen an exploration of vessels in porcelain paper clay and the fragile impermanence of life. She creates delicate and fragile bottle forms, houses and boats. Installation is a key part of her work with recent installations for 'Turn the Page' Artist Book fair and Vista Algre Museum, Portugal.
Marion studied a BA in Fine Art Ceramics at Bretton Hall West Yorkshire adjacent to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park from 1995 to 1999. The effect of being so close to sculpture was that her own work is motivated by clay as a medium for artwork.
Co-founder of StudioDo an Open Access Ceramics and Education business in Norwich set up in 2011 for the promotion of ceramics and ceramic education, an open access membership space. Curator for Cley Contemporary Art 2017.
