Maria Root's Primitiva Pottery and Tile, offers a wide range of ceramic art from award winning garden totems to tile. Whimsy and rich texture adorn her work.
Organic forms inspire Maria's signature: imperfect angles, undulating lips, and sensual bodies. Bas relief carving, embossing, sculpting, and unique color combinations bring life to each piece.
The simple concepts of Maria's pieces disguise the many steps to accomplish her aesthetic. The meditative process within each step breathes specialness into each creation.
When one of my creations finds a home with you, I hope that you experience the joy and happiness I had making it. Maria Root
