Clay Habitat Guest Artist 31st Jul - 11th Aug 2019

Marcel Weidner

After a short spell working with architects and civil engineers, I studied sculpture and cabinet making at the École des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg. Whilst there, I also developed a keen interest in ceramics, so much so that one of my first furniture projects combined wood and ceramic tiles.

"I have always been inspired by the simplicity of geometric forms. Within my work, I like to achieve a contrast between these forms and the more fluid glaze patterns."

— Marcel Weidner. Ceramics Artist

In London, I worked as a designer and maker of furniture for over twenty years before once more turning my attention to ceramics. I’m inspired by the simplicity of geometric forms. I like to achieve a contrast between these forms and the more fluid glaze patterns. Sometimes I’m content to leave the unglazed form to speak for itself.
