Marianita Linck or Marianita, as she signs her pieces, is one of the most representative potters in Rio Grande do Sul and Brazil. After graduating in 1945, she improved her technique in Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Indiana (United States) and Japan. Her exhibitions are always considered important since she is very parsimonious in offering her work publicly.Her works show extreme technical rigor and each piece is based on a specific theme. She works metaphorically but the tamale body is her main inspiration. But this inspiration that can interfere with the final result of his work actually binds them very closely to the four vital elements: earth, water, air, and fire. On the whole, what is exposed to our eyes is not a detail, but a delicate sense of volume. What she deliberates is that her pots (as she calls her pieces) are descendants of those first ceramic objects that mankind has produced as utensils. Her ceramic pieces are not only a delight to the eyes, but they stimulate synesthesia, because the observer admires them with all their senses.
Marianita remains active working and showing her pieces in Porto Alegre. At Galeria Tina Zappoli, she has already done several solo exhibitions and has been participating in all important collective events since 1992.
