Marianne Starck was a German-born ceramist, who was art director of the Danish pottery company Michael Andersen & Son from 1955 until the business was sold in 1993. While with Michael Andersen & Son, Starck produced beautiful studio pieces, and her work is some of the finest to have come out of the company.

Marianne Starck pieces can generally be identified by the incised initials "MS" and the Michael Andersen triangle herring logo, which was taken from the coat of arms of the Town of Roenne on the island of Bornholm where the factory was located.
