1948 - ?

Marion Newcombe

As Marion E. Hockett, she was born at Leyton, Essex in 1948, daughter of Richard Hockett (28 January 1912-1988), a G.P.O. engineering labourer, and his wife Olivia Pauline née Evans (12 December 1912-1998), who married at Leyton, Essex in 1939 and in 1939 were living at 4 Cranleigh Road, Leyton, Essex. Originally a painter in oil but now uses acrylic, water­colours and glazes for decoration. A bunch of flowers, birds, vegetables, our beautiful Suffolk and Norfolk views, scenes of Italy and France, even old groynes on a beach or strata of rock, all these things are her inspiration to paint or pot. She does not 'throw', so pot­ting is another way of creating out of clay from slab work. For the past few years she has done 'Raku', another way with ceram­ics which adds another dimension with clay and would like to pur­sue linocuts. A member of Waveney Springs Art Collective with a studio at Guildhall Cottage, The Street, Metfield, Harleston. Her partner Graham J. Newcombe (born 1948) is a potter at the same studio. She has exhibited at the Upstairs Gallery at Beccles, Suffolk.
