Marianne Weinberg-Benson’s wide range of work can be attributed to the legacy handed down to her by her mentor Charles Counts, “always grow within your work, never stand still, and keep reaching beyond your grasp”.  First she became a “Master Potter” by conquering the skills of throwing the most difficult of clays, porcelain. She was then given the opportunity to create her first public art work by designing the AIA award winning “The Healing Line of Light” at the Medical Center MARTA Station. What follows are a series of community involved and artist initiated works of Public Art exploring social themes while striving to enhance the architecture of the site.  Incorporating her love of story telling and public art led her to invent the new media of Ceramic Cloisonné.
