Marianela Borsten's Profile
My name is Marianela Borsten. I was born a potter without knowing it and growing up in an artistic environment (graphic designers, painters and sculptors) I clearly remember in my early teens when I saw a local potter working endlessly on a wheel throwing beautiful jars and bottles. Something happened then I can't explain. All I know I was infatuated with this experience to the point of no return.
It didn't happen right away but silently brewed in my heart drifting me 15 years later to my first class in wheel throwing. I surprised myself and my teacher the very first day. It felt as if I had thrown for ever, I couldn't stop anymore....
Here I am, 20+ years later my passion proved to be stronger than my own demons and in spite of them, the passion to make artful objects with clay, became after my kids, the most important part of my life.
