Turquoise Tortoise Gallery
Mariann Leahy Clay Art
Ancient Motifs, Contemporary Style

Opening Reception on September 2nd, 2016 (5:00 pm – 8:00 pm)
Ancient myths and symbols provide endless inspiration to artist Mariann Leahy. “As a clay artist, I celebrate symbols combining human and animal motifs,” she explains. “These symbols show the emergence and mystery of life’s energy.” The stories portrayed in Leahy’s art pieces have been researched and influenced from the rich cultural traditions and ruins in the Southwest. Her symbols of horses, ravens and deer or human hands, spirals, and other symbols are drawn with glaze onto fired mica-rich clay that she has formed into wall hangings, platters and bowls. Each piece is then painted with many coats of glazes that come alive in brilliant colors during a second firing process…. For more information please visit the Turquoise Tortoise Gallery.
