Maria Stewart porcelain.

My textile group have an exhibition later this year in Nature In Art in Gloucestershire.As part of it we are each choosing a piece from the collection to base some of our work around.I have chosen a piece by a British ceramicist Maria Stewart .I have tried but can find out very little about her. The pot is so light and the colours are just beautiful ,almost like watercolour in their application.




I chose it because it reminded me of a seed pod.However,having had the opportunity to handle the pot I am reminded of sea urchins,lotus fronds,Klimt.I would love to know what was her inspiration ,as everything in the collection is related to nature in some way.
I have been able to find few other pieces on the internet and no information other than she was born in 1940.If anyone can shed any light I would be grateful.
