Hand-built from porcelain, these tea bowls are uniquely textured. The form is based on the Japanese winter tea bowl, and is useful for tea, ice cream, soup or as a serving bowl. Food, dishwasher and microwave safe. Do not place directly from fridge to microwave or oven or vice versa as it will shock the porcelain and may create stress cracks.
Marion Angelica is a Minnesota clay artist who began as a sculptor. She 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, and pushing boundaries. Most importantly, she likes 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.”
