WELCOME

Malley Weber has an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Goddard College, She is a ceramic artist and educator. In addition to owning and teaching community pottery classes at Hallowell Clay Works,  Malley Is the Ceramic Arts adjunct at Univ. of Maine at Augusta, and a teaching artist for Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts  www.watershedceramics.org Malley specializes in locally sourced Glacial marine clay and is a strong advocate for utilizing the arts for healing trauma and mental health issues.

Malley is passionate about using and educating others about local clay. Her sacred clay work is powerful, humorous, and uses natural often shadow themes.  She also uses clay for therapy, healing trauma, and general stress reduction and helps others remove blocks toward their own creative energies.  Teaching others is a large part of Malley’s practice. Working with clay is a metaphor for life and learning/working in community can bring us great joy and satisfaction. It’s time we slow down and care for ourselves and our planet.  Let’s create more joy!  Life is short!

CLAY FIELD and HEALING– Clay work utilizes a variety of important hand movements which is directly linked with healthy brain development for all ages. Understanding and following haptic perception (touch sense) one can unlock childhood traumas and PTSD by creating new neural pathways.  Clay has the power to heal. transform, and educate.  Ask about a private CLAY FIELD session. We’ll work with your therapist or psychologist to bring you a bottom-up (non-talk) approach to healing.
 

CLAY FIELD SESSIONS Owner Malley Weber works privately with clients/students to develop sensorimotor and haptic perception. We work in clay but not to create a product, rather to retrain neural pathways to alleviate trauma. This is not Talk Therapy.  Malley is trained in Healing Trauma in the Clay Field  and studied with Cornelia Elbrecht.  More about Cornelia’s work here  http://www.sensorimotorarttherapy.com/about/

  1. Way to go,Malley!!! I am a potter at heart!!! It’s been a long time since i sat at a wheel. I do envy you!!! Great work!!

  2. Hi Malley,

    LOVE your website. When I finally have some free time, I just promised myself to take a pottery course. And, of course, it will be with you.

    Hope to see you this summer at the Wav!

  3. Hi Malley, My daughter,Sandy, sent you an invitation to my husband’s 80th birthday. I am your dad’s oldest sister. Your dad had three brothers: Robert (Bob) Weber, Bernard Weber (deceased) and Thomas Weber who lives in Conneticut.
    He also has another sister, Dorothea Dougherty, (deceased). So your dad was one of six siblings. His mom who was your grandmother passed away in 1990. Her name was – Margaret Agnes Weber. Her husband, Robert, was my stepfather.
    My biological father was Walter Powers. I never met him. My mother lft him when my sister and I were very young. Your dad was my favorite brother. He was a good, kindhearted and sweetest person. He was very even-tempered, not like my brother, Bobby, who had a short fuse. Also, he picked a wonderful person to be his wife – your mom. This is just a short bio on our family. If you have any questions just e-mail me. Love, Aunt Peg

    1. Aunt Peg!!! How great that Sandy reached out to my Mom! I’ve been really blown away with all the new information and I really look forward to re-meeting as many of you as I can. I remember bits and pieces. I’ll email you because I have a million questions! This is really wonderful.

  4. Your website and pottery are looking great!! (oh, and nice pictures of you too!)

  5. Glad to see other people digging their own clay. I would like to ask you a few questions, particularly about the program at Goddard. Would you mind if I called to speak with you about that sometime?
    Keep on digging, -Willi

  6. You are something else! Do you remember me saying that I would love to have you for my daughter, but your Mom and Dad got in the way. So I will settle for friendship, even though it has been awhile since we talked. You never fail to amaze me and your pottery is as much fun as always. Your whimsical approach is just what we are looking for. Lar & I are adding an additional product to our Oyster Shucker website, and we would like to talk to you about your pottery. Let me know if you are interested. OK?
    Love, Sherry

  7. We’d like to buy about 25 lbs of white, low-fire, clay (C 06). We’re local, so we’d pick it up.

    Thanks,

    Keith Vallencourt
