Putting Down Roots

Marney McDiarmid is a ceramic artist who lives and works in Kingston, Ontario. For more than a decade, she has created one-of-a-kind, slab-built pieces that are known for their grace, their whimsy and their unusual beauty.

She uses found materials and photographs to build pieces that tell stories and flirt with practicality. The vessels are phenomenally light and often translucent, encouraging the people who hold them to slow down and find pleasure in the small details of everyday life.
