Marielle Macville Ceramics
MarielleMacville's Shop Policies
All items in this store are one of a kind signed pieces.
In western culture art is mostly separated from daily life. Ceramics in the form of bowls or vases can bring back the possibility of that connection.
Pottery has the unique quality of being able to be handled as opposed to paintings. In fact it is vital and inescapable because of it's use. The surface marks I make, create the physical connection between your hands and the shape of the pot. They are what give each pot it's own personality. Each pot tells it's own story. And through it's use, placement or grouping with other pieces it has the ability to become part of a new story.
My pieces are - like myself and my children - the product of a cultural melting pot. Created equally, with the same set of genes so to say, but absolutely not from the same mold. I give them form, but each one is encouraged to develop it's own character. I may look at them in a certain way; I may have had intentions on what they would become, but I expect them to take on a life of their own when they leave my house.
I am currently working on my Artifacts Collection. This is a collection of decorative yet functional ceramic art inspired by post bronze age Mediterranean cultures and ritual Asian bronzes. All pieces are one of a kind wheel-thrown and hand-altered, then glazed and fired to hues ranging from patinaed copper bronze to turquoise in a gas or electric kiln to cone 6 or 10.
