© American Museum of Ceramic Art (www.amoca.org), On A Clear Day Series by Marcella Ruble, Clay, Decals and Gold.
Marcella conceived of the site sculptures in 1997, soon after she settled into her Los Angeles home which has an incredible view. Using lusters fired over matte glazes on her sensual ceramic forms, Marcella created one-of-a kind trapezoidal box-like sculptures ranging in size from knee-high to less than a foot. They were abstract landscapes - part city, part skyline, part nature, reflecting what she saw from her patio.
Recently Marcella discovered a new digital technology that has allowed her to transfer her series of photographic panoramas of these vistas onto her sculptures, which now serve as “canvases” to reflect her unique viewpoint of Los Angeles.
A native of Chicago, Marcella Ruble is an artist and art historian. She has exhibited and sold her art and jewelry at galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Miami and Chicago. She took her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Sculpture at the University of Illinois and earned a Masters Degree from the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in Decorative Arts, Design and Material Culture.
Pussy hats became the symbol of the Women's March. They inspired me to make the Pussy Pins as another symbol of support for women’s rights. The Pussy's tongue is sticking out in defiance of those who dare try to demean us. Shop Now
