Inspired by nature and peaceful places, local artist Marianne Annereau crafts unique and playful handmade pottery from her studio in Subiaco. Her signature sea-creature air-plant series pairs succulents with small hand-painted pots that can be strung throughout the home, and look great suspended together in a ‘family’ formation. Marianne also has a beautiful range of handcrafted mugs, bowls, mermaid eggs, platters and jewellery. Sea creatures are $55 each and a pair of stingray plates are $109.
