Marina Lemar is a lovely lady I was fortunate to meet many years ago at a convention. She impressed me with her kindness and warmth.

A while ago, I was able to use donations to this website to sponsor a modest arts grant, and Marina was one of the winners for her hand made majolica pottery.

Marina wrote to let us know that she had won yet another prize for her pottery. This charming mug was the winnah!


Marina also creates handsome plates.


You can see more pics of Marina’s work here.

I had some nice articles and interviews with Marina and the other winners of the grant which seem to have gotten corrupted in the blog migration. If you notice, earlier posts reloaded to this new blog have formatting problems. I sincerely apologize for that!
