Welcome to Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am your host Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Today, I am heading over to Mudge Island, located within the scenic Gulf Islands, between Vancouver Island and Gabriola Island. I am delighted and thrilled to meet up with Marcelle Glock, Ceramist to discuss the wood fired ceramic tradition.
Marcelle is a remarkable artist. Her pottery and sculptures sit in private collections around the world. Her artwork encompasses stoneware, raku, and local wild terra-cotta. Marcelle forms clay into extraordinary artworks – from functional to sculptural, wearable and oracle. She imbues each piece with a primal reverence toward the natural world.
I invite you to put the kettle on and add to this exciting conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for joining Marcelle and me on Tea Toast & Trivia.
This conversation has been pure magic, Marcelle. I cannot believe that we have been talking for over two hours and it feels like twenty minutes.
Listeners, thank you for joining Marcelle and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. You will be pleased to know that this is just part one of a two-part conversation with Marcelle. Stay tune for our ongoing discussion in part two which will take you deeper into the journey of an artist working in the wood fired ceramic tradition.
And a special thank you, Marcelle, for sharing your insights, your journey, and your connection to nature through the medium of clay. Your continued awareness, respect and reverence for your art and the medium in which you work inspires me. I know that you have encouraged listeners to recognize artistic endeavour is a calling and a responsibility
Listeners, I invite you to meet up with Marcelle on her website, Mad Mudslinger on Instagram and YouTube. And if you are visiting Gabriola Island, Marcelle’s work will be featured in the November 2021 grand opening of Free Spirit Gallery on North Road.
