MARY ROGERS
MARY ROGERS

Mary Rogers' hand-built, pinched stoneware and (predominantly) porcelain bowls were amongst the most delicate pots of the 1970s and beyond, a foil to the more solid functional wares predominating in that period. Rogers' shapes appeared to have their origin in early history and organic natural forms, pots to be cupped and held but also enjoyed for their coral and mollusk like colours, patterns and surfaces, some rippling as if caught in an ocean current. There was a softness in Rogers' most sensitive work, quietly expressive of nature's fragility and growth, its inherent energies.

Born in 1929 in Derbyshire, Rogers studied at Watford, St Martin's School of Art and Loughborough, where she set up her first studio, later moving to Cornwall and retiring in 1991.
