Little Brown Dog Ceramics
Little Brown Dog Ceramics are lovingly created by Marian Sweet in her garden studio. Marian trained at Loughborough College of Art though due to child minding and raising a family didn’t start using these skills until a little brown dog turned up. The little brown dog was specially trained for Marian to assist her daily life by Hearing Dogs for Deaf people. He was the catalyst to re-fire Marian’s creative journey and her love of ceramics. All work is hand thrown on her kick wheel and fired in the garden studio. Her work is and organic revolving process which plays with experimental techniques like throwing coloured clays creating movement and flowing individual pieces. Marian enjoys working with colour and using organic textured materials then working in harmony with smooth nanothrown forms.
