About The Artist
Marion Angelica • Minneapolis, MN
Ceramics • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE
I am predominantly a maker of hand-built, high fire tableware. Designing tableware that explores sculptural possibilities within the limits of functionality is the most exhilarating aspect of my practice. My inspiration is drawn from the forms and textures in nature, although I do not replicate them. I work with soft slabs and coils that exploit porcelain's unique qualities. I develop subtle colored glazes that enhance and change as they flow around the textures characteristic of my work.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
I work in high fire Grolleg porcelain combining soft slabs with coils. I design my work by creating templates that allow me to repeat shapes. I use many items, rollers, stamps that I make, and found objects to create texture in my work. I develop my own glazes and prefer ones that enhance the textures. I fire in a gas kiln which gives richness and depth to the glazes.
