MarciG: Hand Building Her Own Path
When I was a freshman in college, I built a mock Stonehenge out of Coke cans and titled the installation "Pop Rock." I painted and drew for a few classes, but by summer I was too busy building a treehouse and preparing to transfer to a larger university to major in Anthropology (since I'm one of those odd ducks that actually enjoys research) too bother with growing as an artist.
Marci of MarciG, however, races head on growing and developing her business she's run since high school selling hand-built pottery. This is her first collegiate summer break and she's working for herself. I look at what she's doing and I think, "I wish I'd been doing what I do since high school. This girl is flippin' sweet! She's making it happen!"
Marci is a rockstar. She knows she has a talent for design and she runs with it! In high school, under the guidance of her mom, my friend, Lee of Lee Wolfe Pottery, she made her way into Seventeen Magazine with her stellar poppy bowls (which are adorable). Now, however, she's growing into new and more fascinating things with geometric designed mugs and tessellation plates.
At only 19, Marci is really proving that she can make her own way. I'm excited to see what this young talent will produce next! What she's done already is establish a solid reputation and style as a ceramicist before even reaching the age of 20.
Doesn't it inspire you to get moving? Me too.
