Millside ceramics since 1998

Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory

Millside Ceramics is proudly located on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory and was established by Marleen Murphy in 1998. Marleen is a well respected Mohawk woman, a friend to her community and a master ceramics artist across the province.

At Millside Ceramics, each and every ceramic piece is hand crafted from earthenware clay and molds. Each is kiln fired and hand painted by Marleen in her home studio. Much of her collection boasts 100% soy, sweetgrass-scented candles with cedar wicks – a product that is also locally made in Tyendinaga territory.

inspirational as she was an accomplished author, poet, musician, artist, and craftswoman.

Marleen is very knowledgeable about First Nations family and community traditions and strives to include that knowledge within each and every piece that she makes. Her connection to traditional medicines and teachings can be found in her most renowned pieces such as the Friendship Circle, Smudge Bowls and Medicine Wheel Collections.

Marleen personally showcases her work at conferences, events and Pow Wows across Canada. Likewise, Marleen’s art is featured in many trading posts, art stores, on websites and on-line galleries.
