Marlene Zagdanski

Nathan Phillips Square
Booth 51
Marlene Zagdanski is an emerging ceramic artist based in Toronto. Her work transcribes personal responses evoked by the natural and built environments, and the human form. The sculptural forms she creates function as drawings or paintings in space, crystalized through material exploration that also explore her interest in pushing the limits of the media, encouraging glaze movement and melt and allowing chance to exist through the firing process. Marlene obtained a BFA from Concordia University before pursuing a non-arts related degree and career. In 2015-2016 she joined and completed the third (final) year of Sheridan College’s Crafts and Design Diploma Program, signalling her return to the arts. In 2016 she competed a residency at the Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Centre, Denmark. Her work has been exhibited at, among other venues, the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, The Craft Ontario Gallery, The Apple House Gallery (Denmark) and the Burlington Art Gallery.
