Hello and welcome to Mirthful Angel Pottery located in suburban Philadelphia. My name is Marlene Serafine Gaudio. In the journey of self-discovery, I am grateful to realize my vocation as a ceramic artisan. My signature vases are meant to exalt the art of the potter. Serafine Gaudio translates from Italian: “mirthful angel,” thus the name of my studio.
My workshop is my creative sanctuary where a lump of clay is transformed into a beautiful ceramic object, utilitarian or sculptural. I employ various handbuilding and wheelthrowing techniques in order to lovingly create one-of-a kind ceramic vessels. I strive to express an aesthetic quality of form, incorporate complementary glazes and exercise qualitative craftsmanship.
I hope you enjoy viewing my pottery as much as I enjoy making it! You are welcome to visit the studio at my Bi-Annual Open House and Sale, the first weekends of May and December, and daily by appointment.
