Mary Jane Lundy Crescent Clay

A Craft Nova Scotia Master Artisan clay sculptor, works with NS red earthenware clay; she is inspired by the sea life found in the Maritime waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and the birds and plant life that inhabit its shoreline.
Mary Jane Lundy is a Craft Nova Scotia Master Artisan who creates land and sea inspired ceramic sculptural work, with the goal of generating a joyous visual experience. She graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in 2003 with a BFA major in Ceramics. During her studies at NSCAD University, she was inspired by the designs of 15th century French ceramist Bernard Palissy. Palissy cast living things such as frogs, lizards, fish, plants and shells in plaster to create clay press molds. Like Palissy who cast only species from his surrounding area, Mary Jane has limited her subjects to Nova Scotian sea life.
