Maria Nordgren makes unique, functional pottery; thrown or hand built in porcelain and stoneware. She started pottery training in Sweden in the 70s, but went on to become a geologist. After arriving in Scotland 2006, she became a full-time potter, joined Scottish Potters' Association in 2007 and is currently on the committee as workshop coordinator. She exhibits with SPA, Fusation and other art and craft groups.
Momentum Pottery is open by appointment all year and for the Alyth Creates festival in May and Perthshire Open Studios in September, when Maria is joined by Christine Flynn, demonstrating raku firing. There are also demonstrations and exhibits of work by willow weaver Rachel Bower, and stone carver David McGovern.
Maria and Rachel are collaborating, combining willow and clay to make decorative and functional work. She is also firing together with Fran Marquis, using her gas kiln at Springfield Creative Arts in Arbroath. Since 2016 Maria has also enjoyed firing work and assisted in several wood firings in Scotland and England.
The pottery classes at Momentum pottery are run by Nancy Fuller, but they are currently cancelled due to the pandemic.
