This Week's Featured Artists

Marilyn Pardee

Marilynn moved to San Felipe in March of 2009 from San Francisco. She is returning to the textile arts after a 20-year hiatus to raise her daughter. Marilynn designed and manufactured under the label ‘PARDEE’ during the 1980’s in Los Angeles. Her line was carried in fashion-forward boutiques and prestigious stores throughout the United States. Her pieces currently can be purchased through her website:

Mary Mobley – Ceramic Potter

Mary Mobley found the art medium of clay in 1992....or rather it found her. She began experimenting by taking ceramic classes and joining The Creative Play Studio in Alexandria Virginia. Her works have been seen in many art shows around the country. As a mostly self-taught clay builder and potter she has learned that, “The piece of clay will tell you what it wants.” She might start out with a bowl in mind and it will end up being a plate. This kind of synergism is very much reflected in her free form works and hand built fish of which much detail is apparent. Her clay ideas are pressed, pulled, scored, rolled, dug out and attached with attention to the forms of nature as her inspiration. “Pottery has been around since time began, and I hope my pieces will be appreciated long after I am gone.”
