MARNEY McDIARMID: THE GARDEN GROWING ON WITHIN US
Kingston ceramicist Marney McDiarmid explores a new type of captivating vessel in The Garden Growing On Within Us. McDiarmid creates striking pieces out of porcelain with lush, graphic imagery and finely crafted details. A narrative emerges, influenced by concepts of growth, decay, and regeneration. In the artist's words, “A garden can overtake you, nourish you, or provide a place to hide.”
