Marianne de Trey obituary
Potter who contributed significantly to the British crafts revival

"Marianne de Trey, who has died aged 102, was one of the pioneers of the British functional studio ceramics movement after the second world war. Following the ideals of Bernard Leach, these potters provided handcrafted alternatives to factory production. Through her tablewares, her role as a teacher and the decorative pieces she continued to make into old age, Marianne contributed significantly to the British crafts revival. Her fine, often exuberant tablewares are among the signature forms of postwar ceramics."
