About Marianne Gerlach

It is the elemental nature of ceramics that attracts and excites me.

The initial inspiration for my work comes from the natural world.

Having said that: I have no wish or intention of directly copying nature ...  but a great wish to capture .... communicate ...  and bring an ‘essence’ of nature indoors ... into the interior .... into where ‘we’ as so-called modern man tend to spend the majority of our lives.

I seek to work in the space between chaos and order  .... or ordered chaos .... where I do not have the full control of the final visuals of the piece but leave it up to the material and to the work  process itself to leave its mark too.
