TODAY‘S HOURS: 10am to 5pm

Mary Christopher


Until April 2022, when my husband and I relocated to Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina, we lived in Silver Star, Montana. Although I was born and raised in Michigan, I have also made my homes in Hawaii and California. Through all my adventures, my unifying interest has been creating art, mostly pottery. While raising a family and guiding my teaching career I have sold my work from Hawaii to South Carolina.

Philosophy/Artist Statement

The marriage counselor said to him, “You have to apologize.  Yes, you did already apologize, but you have to apologize to her core.”
What core? Her husband didn’t know she had a core. On her part how could she show him her core if she didn’t even know she had one?
That’s what my clay images are about. I attempt to create an example of a strong, responsible female who knows who she is. If I can experience that more completely I’ll be happy.
