Calligraphy & Porcelain Sculpture
Marita is a Northwest native who has recently moved from her studio
at beautiful Priest Lake, Idaho to Berthoud, Colorado.
She specializes in calligraphic art pieces and porcelain sculpture and handbuilt functional pieces.
She began working in calligraphy in 1965 in her hometown of Portland, Oregon,
when Lloyd Reynolds was actively acquiring aficionados of the craft.
She has taught calligraphy from beginning through advanced levels since 1975
in Washington, Oregon, Montana, California, Wisconsin and Idaho.
She continues to study the calligraphic arts
by frequent attendance at workshops.
Marita began sculpting in 1986 under the tutelage of Kay Henkel in Palm Springs,
and works primarily in porcelain.
Faces and horses usually decorate delicate but strong functional bowls and vases.
Her sculptures include a series of Pioneer Women and Mother Earth figures.
Embossed and debossed patterns decorate her handbuilt bowls and vases.
