RED HEN GALLERY

Artist | Galleries & Studios | Jewellery | Pottery, Ceramics & Glassware | Visual Arts & Crafts

Mary Lazier says that she makes pottery because her older sister Annie wouldn’t let her paint, because she was a better artist, so Mary and her mother started making pottery. Mary also has made mobiles out of Origami, fused glass and other natural objects; garden sculpture has also been a passion, warthogs, dinosaurs and mermaids among them. She is known for hand built porcelain tableware, using lace patterns. Mark Tichenor, Mary’s husband, learned to make pottery when he was a student in Lebanon, at the American University of Beirut. He was a student of Math and Physics, but had to earn a credit in art, so he chose ceramics. He makes the world’s best ceramic egg poacher and a porcelain “chicano” which replaces the beer can chicken cooking method without the paint, glue or solder of a beer can. In 1999, when they took over Mary’s mother’s property in Mulmur Township, they met a lot of artists by joining a local studio tour. Suddenly they had like minded artist friends, a lot of them working in clay, glass, textiles and wood. Almost 20 years later, they have a wonderful studio with a million dollar view for 30 miles to the east, an annual North of 89 Studio Tour, a geodesic dome green house, and a wish to show the work of some of the very interesting and creative three dimensional artists around.

The collection of artists, each whose work is highly desired and distinctly creative, ensures this gallery offers a feast for the eye as well as an enjoyable and affordable shopping experience:
