“Touch of Class” Canoe Salt Cellar. It’s the little extra touch. So classy. Couldn’t you see it sitting next to your stove or on your table? Everyone would want to check it out and talk about it. Hand-built porcelain by Marion Angelica with a very cute handmade small spoon.
Marion Angelica is a Minnesota clay artist who began as a sculptor and fell in love with the idea of creating sculpturally oriented functional artwork. Currently, Marion, exhibits in a variety of galleries across the country. Her clay work is about texture, nature, pushing boundaries, and the ability to use art in your daily life.
Marion has a bachelor’s of art degree in sculpture from the University of Massachusetts. A Master’s of Art in ceramics from the University of Minnesota-Duluth and a Master’s of Fine Art in ceramics from the University of New York-New Paltz. In 2012 and 2013, this artist was awarded the Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Award.
Marion says, “I believe that authentic art of all kinds requires honed skills and aesthetic sensibilities in combination with openness to accepting unanticipated happy accidents. Although I always come to the studio with an idea in mind, I find my most successful pieces often take shape when I carefully watch and feel what the clay does and respond to it.”
