My wood takes on many processes. I cut, mill and cure my own wood that I find in nature. I search for unique features in the wood to make my pieces original. All my pieces to have an organic quality and profile but also have a practical purpose.  I celebrate nature’s bounty.

I have been in relationship with clay since I was a little girl making fun little sculptures form the natural clay found on the banks of the tiny fishing village of Port Stanley in Ontario.  Climbing up high on the clay cliffs to hidden pools of soft warm clay was such an adventure! 

So here I am now older… and now able to make vessels that speak to my sole. I like to make pieces that have a rhythm and motion that are influenced by nature.  Water, wind and fire have always had a presence in my work. The direct contact with my hands on the clay evokes mindfulness and allows honesty with my feelings and sensitivity to my nurturing sole as a woman.

In this series, I am seeking my truth and my connection to nature and the challenges I have faced throughout my life. I was drawn to certain animals; felt a close connection with them.  Each of these spirit, or totem animals has been a teacher, a messenger, or healer guiding me on my path. They have brought with them wisdom to teach me about myself and my life’s choices.

In the Native beliefs, the circle is a sacred symbol. It has come to represent wholeness, completion, and the cycle of life to death to rebirth.  I have chosen different circles in this series to represent the seasons of my life.  Each season has brought with it different challenges. Life’s journey is not always easy.

Marianne Morris

I live in a big, busy city. What I try to do with my paintings is create a place of meditative calm amidst the chaos. How does living in today’s world affect how we connect to ourselves, our culture, society, each other? What is the connection between certain shapes and colours, and our emotional, instinctive gut reaction? It’s this mystery that defines my direction
