Marge Marguiles

The intent of my ceramic work is to create organic, flowing compositions which serve as lively and useful centerpieces. In these random and conscious groupings, which resemble things found in nature, elements of shape are combined, emphasizing fluid forms and rich, subtle color relationships. My work is inspired by such wide ranging influences as topographical features, flower arrangements, abstract expressionist paintings and my mother’s Danish Modern furniture and Passover dishes. I am constantly striving to make pottery that is substantial yet lighthearted and which adds richness and vitality to any environment.


Using earthenware clay I throw each piece on the wheel then use various hand processes like squashing and stretching to alter the shapes. I create custom colors and apply glazes to achieve lively, unusual and satisfying color groupings with deliciously soft surfaces. I work to make pieces that are evenly thrown and feel lightweight and balanced.

All pieces are individual works of art and are subject to the whims of the artist and nature.
