Since we first spotted her hand carved porcelain pots, we’ve been smitten with Maria’s work. The Hollywood ceramicist (by way of South Carolina—she hasn’t lost her twang) is as motivated by the organic forms of an insect wing, a water ripple or a sand dollar, as how light interacts and effects the details on these surfaces. She studied sculpture in Italy and at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine, and her pots have received top placement from the American Ceramic Society and other craft guilds. She handles each piece pot, bottle, jar and pendant individually, which might be why we can’t keep our hands off of them!
The porcelain medallion is a staple in Rose’s jewelry box, in part because it works whether the look is casual or evening. Friends who’ve been on the receiving end of their own have all loved them, too. Medallions measure 1.5” or 2.5” in diameter and hang from 16” sterling silver omega cords. Boxed and ready for giving.
