We are sad to report that Marianne de Trey has died at the age of 102.
Ken and Marianne were great friends who enjoyed travelling together for many years. Ken was always very impressed by Marianne’s bright intelligence and her powers of observation. It was clear to Ken in what high esteem other potters held Marianne on their visits to studios in the Southwest, and we are proud to hold a good number of Marianne’s pots in the Collection.
