Mary Benjamin

A Bluestem Partner for over 26 years, Mary (now retired from ownership) makes both jewelry & functional vessels of porcelain. Manipulating colored clay bodies by stacking & cutting, sometimes stretching & stamping, she develops a rich palette of pattern & color. It took many years to master this unique technique of hers. Recent work is mixed media collage sculpture featuring her collection of beautiful papers & whimsical sense of design & style.
