Mary Morazzi-Henderson discovered her love for making pottery while in high school and at Lesley College, Cambridge, Ma where she took ceramic classes and workshops.
After marriage and the birth of her first child, Morazzi-Henderson continued her ceramic studies and began classes with Makoto Yabe at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA , an association that was to last for 20 years. During that time, Mary joined the faculty as a ceramic instructor.
At Silk and Clay Studio Morazzi-Henderson concentrates on making functional pieces that are intended for everyday use yet her work also extends to free form sculptural expression. Beginning with simple forms she explores texture and color using various carving and glazing techniques.
Her work is made with stoneware clay, covered with lead free glazes and fired cone 6 in an electric kiln making it food safe and extremely durable.
Since the closing of the DeCordova Museum School she offers classes only at Silk and Clay Studio.
