Mary Thomas Firestone was born and raised in North Carolina and currently lives in Lafayette, IN. Her work consists of mostly functional items for the home and garden created in high-fired stoneware and porcelain. She encourages collectors of her pieces to enhance their lives by using art every day in addition to on special occasions. She makes her stoneware pottery with leaf impressions by impressing a real leaf into the wet clay during the forming process. The leaf impression is stained, waxed, and then dipped into liquid glaze.
