mwhite52310's Shop Announcement

Maria's Art was established in 1977 in the basement of her home in Monticello, Iowa. Basically working in clay, the business soon overtook the entire home. A couple of moves later, Maria's Art now consumes over 4000 square feet of downtown Monticello, IA. Complete with a showroom that is filled with pottery and hand painted glass ornaments.

Maria has been featured in many newspapers and publications throughout the country and has shipped her ornaments all over the world.

In 1982, Maria was asked to create a "Limited Edition" ornament depicting the historic buildings of Stone City, Iowa (Grant Wood Country). From this simple beginning, Maria has been commissioned by many celebrities, the staff of Buckingham Palace, travel agencies, realtors, various corporations and businesses, to paint special one-of-a-kind ornaments to commemorate special events, historic buildings, homes, pets and even vehicles.

Maria's work with clay for over 30 years has captured the beauty of true art pottery. She continues to experiment and create with new and old processes that have taken her pottery into unique and different directions.

Marias education is in fine art. She teaches evening pottery classes at her shop and does a weekly radio show.

Last, but not least...every piece of art produced is 100% Made in America. All clay, paint and ornaments are Products of the USA.
