MMH Originals are creations made by designer/artist Marjorie Millhon Hay.
Born and educated in America, Marjorie studied Graphic Design at Indiana University (BA) and received a Masters in Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design. She was teaching design at RISD and the University of Canterbury in Christchurch when Marjorie met her Kiwi husband and they now live on a sheep and beef farm
outside of Lawrence.
Having successfully practiced commercial graphic design for 25 years both in America and New Zealand, Marjorie now applies the same principles of design: form, function, balance, proportion, contrast, and semantics to the fine arts.
Ceramic forms: vessels, organic crosses and garden sculptures are created using a combination of stoneware, terracotta and porcelain clay bodies mixed with oxides. The forms are organic and tactile.
Printmaking images incorporate her love of photography, typography and beautiful paper.
Work can be seen/purchased on Facebook: MMH Originals and is available at several galleries and shops throughout New Zealand.
