Marion Brandis is a Sussex-based artist who works primarily with ceramics. She has created a number of public art installations, including works in Broadmead shopping centre in Bristol, at St George’s Hospital in London and even aboard an ocean liner.
“I specialise in ceramics, tiles and mosaics in indoor and outdoor settings. Ceramics are very suited to public settings, because they are tough, easy to clean and maintain, and vandal-resistant.
Knowing my materials is important to me. Because I hand-make most of my pieces, I can obtain both bright and subtle colours to suit any design.
However, my practice has included working with other materials as well. As a qualified landscape designer I know how to integrate work into outdoor settings.
I am committed to creating art that is fit for its purpose, relates well to its location, and is seen as an asset by the people for whom it is created.”
