Maralyn Reed-Wood

Maralyn's affair with ceramics began at school in Kirkcudbright where the Higher Art class worked with the Lochhead Pottery. She studied art in Essex making pots in a studio converted from an air-raid shelter. After becoming a teacher, Maralyn worked as an Art Therapist in an epilepsy hospital, setting up her own studio simultaneously. At a time when figures were most unacceptable in the art world, she worked against the trend. Her figures were accepted by the Triennialle de la Porcelain, Nyon, Switzerland, the 'porcelain capital' of Europe. This was followed by The International Porcelain Exhibition at the Scottish Gallery and an Arts Council Award. Illness brought her career to an abrupt halt, and she re-invented herself making small ceramic pieces which sold internationally for the next 15 years, winning awards and commendations. She has finally returned to her figurative roots, and her porcelain figures sell in galleries throughout Scotland. She has exhibited with the RSA and The RGI and has been short-listed on four occasions for figurative porcelain awards.
