I am a Toronto based ceramic artist and instructor. My work consists of both functional and sculptural objects. I am drawn to clay for its expressive nature as well as its ability to create utility. As an artist I am intrigued by layers. As a maker, process plays an important role in my work. Each working stage in a piece brings a new layer and each action leavesits mark on the finished results. The forms I create are derived from landscapes and borrowed elements from nature, architecture and the human form.
(Please note: We have a constantly changing selection of Michelle's pieces in the gallery. Pieces shown are a sampling of Michelle Mendlowitz's work)
