Mohwak, Tyendinaga First Nation
Marleen Murphy's business has grown over the years and has become very well known. Her work is recognized all over Ontario, it is unique and boasts the newest Mohawk Pottery Design. Her pieces can be seen at many Pow wows, conferences and events across Canada along with Trading Posts and stores to whom she sells wholesale.
Marleen teaches classes in her own community of Tyendinaga and has visited other communities and schools to teach her art and her culture. All of her pieces are hand crafted from Earthenware Clay and molds, and are kiln fired. Marleen hand paints each piece using techniques that she's learned over many years. Many of her pieces contain sweetgrass scented waxes (with cedar wick) which are also Mohawk hand made. Marleen's work is unique, visually stunning, and reflects Mohawk teachings and spirit. Millside Ceramics is located on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory since 1998 It is Mohawk owned and operated. Marleen is also a generous donator to 'Pass The Feather' and we are honoured to work with her!
