Maria Dondero

Maria Dondero
Athens, GA

Maria Dondero is a studio potter and the owner of Marmalade Pottery in Athens, Georgia. “I focus on kickwheel-thrown, functional pieces to be used everyday,” she says. “Instead of production pottery, however, I try to make each piece unique, with its own story to bring to your home. I intend for these pieces to be used daily, hopefully bringing a moment of lightness and tranquility to our generally hectic lives.” About her slip drawings Dondero notes, “I respond to the form itself with imagery from my life and surroundings. I seek to balance the immediacy of quickly sketched drawings with the permanence of a piece of pottery.”
