Marion was born in New Zealand and spent her childhood in Switzerland. After meeting her partner Derek they moved to the South of France for ten wonderful years. On a stay in San Francisco Marion took a three-month ceramics course and was hooked. After moving to Australia she continued ceramic studies at Randwick tech and the Canberra School of Art graduating in 1983.
Marion enjoys designing tableware and has received numerous commissions from restaurants and hotels in Canberra and interstate. Leaning towards asymmetric and free form designs she finds pouring glaze on glaze gives some freedom and freshness to her platters creating different results every time. Her work also features a clear glaze with simple brush strokes. She continues Raku firing, a technique she has used since Randwick tech and relishes the spontaneity of the firing process with the surprises it can bring.
She was a member of Garema Place Potters gallery, Civic and Trainspotters Gallery, Bungendore and has been with potters place since its inception.
