Mary Roehm is known for her paper-thin wheel-thrown porcelain vessels. She explores the possibilities for manipulating her vessels, often twisting, tearing the edges, and creating less than round rims. The pieces are usually left unglazed so the effects of wood-firing can be most evident. Although she creates many domestic forms, she is most well known for her bowls, pouring and conceptual sculptural vessels.
