Nature’s beauty in color, texture, and shape is the constant source of inspiration for Mary Ann Burk’s pottery. Her work is informed entirely by her personal interpretation of the natural world. Her mother was a gifted and magical gardener, who fostered a profound connection in Burk to the earth’s subtle designs and patterns from an early age. Her father, a gifted photographer, did the same as he traveled this country to capture and document Natural Parks. Their vision mingled with her own continues to influence all of her pieces. Every design is one of a kind. They are sometimes hand thrown, sometimes hand built, etched, carved, and textured with a whimsical sense of purpose. Every endeavor, every piece, every sculpture is a result of Burk’s admiration for a world she finds as familiar as it is complex, and quite simply beautiful.
