Marti Mocahbee, Clay Artist
As a full time studio potter since 1995, Marti is a clay artist working in Staunton, Virginia. Her teapots, bowls, cups and saucers, plates, vases and lidded jars are wheel thrown and hand painted with layers of underglazes on Georgia red clay.
Inspired by cultural and historical influences, Marti’s pieces are a showcase of excellent color and definition recognized for complimentary form and design.
As a full time studio potter since 1995 I have enjoyed working with clay since I was exposed to wheel throwing as a teenager. My pottery pieces are hand painted with layers of underglazes on Georgia red clay to give the excellent color and definition which has been recognized at fine art festivals around the country.
My love of clay and passion for history is uniquely combined in creating all my works. The designs have cultural and historical influences. Finding ways to compliment form with design is my biggest challenge and one that I take on with energy and enthusiasm.
I received a Bachelor of Arts with high honors from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio in 1994.
